    Hello everyone. I'm new to the chicken world and I am currently building the purina mills coop. Hoping to finish it very soon so I can order chickens in the next week or so.

    I built the nesting boxes last night but I forgot to take a picture. Next is a feeder built into the side of the coop.

    Welcome Hogley!!!!! The coop looks like a great start, but if I could possibly give you one small bit of advice that would have helped us so much when we built our dog pen. Make sure it fits out the door!!!!!! Glad to have you around, and welcome!!!!

    Thank you for the advice. That sure is a good tidbit that would be very bad if missed. I can't wait to order chickens I just haven't made up my mind yet.

    Fargolady is there anyone local you use for baby chicks? Batavia is a short drive for me so I'd be happy to take a trip to hand pick my chicks.

    Just some more updates on the coop. I built the feeder into the side of the coop this week and got everything painted today. I'm getting very excited about this project.

    Finished everything up last Friday. All the birds went out the same day and have been doing great. Even got a little outside time around Easter because it was beautiful outside.
