    Hey Everyone!

    We are about to start construction on our chicken coop. Stop by my page and watch the progress. I will be working on it over the next 8 weeks so any suggestions anyone might have along the way would be appreciated.

    Here are the basics. It is going to be a heavy chicken tractor, 8' X 8', high pitch roof, 6' side walls. It will hold about 8 or 10 hens. The one thing I have to have is a VSBi automatic door. Those look very cool!

    Thanks!

    Hey Y'all,

    I've got some updated pics on my page. You have to check out the antique chick brooder I found in my friends pasture. Pretty cool. Chicks arrive in about 10 days!
