    New to chickens, just built a new coop and house and was wondering what some of the veterans thought. The coop is 16ft x 40ft and the henhouse is 8 X 10 ft with a nesting area and a roost. I have 28 RIR that are ~10 weeks old. pics will be posted as soon as I figure out how.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Just some useless info, but in the first pic you will see my biggest roo, I named him judas, because I'm not sure I'll be able to trust him later! LOL!

    I like how you used 5 gal buckets for nest boxes. What a great idea.

    My brother in law found it on the internet, fairly easy to build. He also built two chicken tractors that seem impressive to me. I will post pics later when the rain stops and I can get out to take pics.
