So, I started the coop and run today. Great day to be working outside, it was 75˚F and sunny. I made good progress for day one. This is for our chicks we just got a few days ago https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/740783/look-who-arrived-today The run is 16'x8' and the coop is 4'x8'. I'm going to make 6 nesting boxes. The location is the south end of my yard. The wall will block a lot of sun and the roof I will put on most of it will block a lot as well until late afternoon. This is important since daytime summer temps can hit 110˚F frequently and there is usually a couple months of temps over 100˚F. Here's a link to my build and I'll post a few. http://s421.beta.photobucket.com/user/MaddBaggins/library/The Green Dragon Roost That beer is one of mine. I've been a homebrewer since 97. I call this one The Sopwith Camel Flying Ace, 7.8%abv and very refreshing, especially after busting my hump all day.
