My wife has wanted to raise chickens for 30 years but we were a Navy family moving every 3 years so starting a chicken project wasn't really in the cards. Now that we have retired from the Navy and returned home it seemed like a good idea to build my bride a chicken coop and us try our hand at it. We have 5 acres and several out buildings. One building has a 14' roof around 3 sides of it so I built her a coop using the existing roof line. I have it mostly completed and will start on the run next weekend. The coop is 4x8 the roof runs about 5' in the coop. If anyone has any input or ideas please let me know. I've done a lot of reading but am really going about this on what knowledge I have gained here.
