HELP! - building a coop & run
« on: May 02, 2010, 22:45 »
We are interested in keeping 3 or 4 chickens in our surburban backgarden and are asking for some advice on setting up a coop and run. We have a large garden shed which we think would be ideal to convert into a coop and intend to attach a timber framed run on the side. we would welcome any advice, Do's & Dont's to get us started.
