Hi! It's been awhile, I'm sure no one remembers me. But that's ok, I wasn't here long. I was thinking about chickens last year, but was living in a rented house, and then we were houes hunting all summer. We have a lovely house now, with almost an acre of land now, and so I'm thinking chickens again. My hubby is on board. Sadly, I'll be a rebel, since the town doesn't allow chickens (insert an eye roll here, we're a little country town with the nearest shopping area being 45 minutes away, outside of a super Wal-Mart on the other side of town, but whatever.) I did talk to an official of the town who said they are technically illegal, but as long as no one complains, it would probably be fine. I do know someone in the same town who has a bunnies and swans in their yard...anyways, yeah...this could all be for moot if one of my neighbors hates my chickens. Anyways, my husband and I have no carpenter skills, so we're searching for a coop to buy online. For awhile we liked the Eglu, but that's far above our budget. Now I'm thinking of this one: Chicken Coop Dimensions Outside: 82 in(L)x52in(H)x27.5in(W) 2100mm(L)x1330mm(H)x700mm(W) Inside: Coop/House Inside Area is 25.5" x 25.5" Approximately 4.5 sq.ft Not Including Nest Box NEST BOX Inside 21" long x 11" deep Run Area Inside Measurements Total Run Area Is About 64" long x 25.5" deep Approximately 11.3 sq.ft I'm only planning on 3-4 chickens. Do you think this will be big enough? I plan on extending the run, or giving the chickens free range since the yard is completely closed in. This would also be somewhat temporary as well. I have a garden shed that is huge and unused, and I'm hoping to find someone who can help me convert it to a coop, one that would be good during our extra cold winters. I'm super excited, but totally terrified of making stupid mistakes with my chickens. I want them to be happy and have enough space.
