We brought some chickens with us from Texas to Arkansas. We bought a small coop for starters and hubby built it along with help from my cousin. The coop is large enough to hold up to 4 chickens. Right now we have 2 ameraucanas. They should start laying as soon as there’s enough light. Chickens require 14 hours of sunlight. This coop is too small to hang a light so we will just have to wait out the winter.
The coop is light enough to move around the yard. Ideally down te road we will build a bigger coop and this one will be used for chicks or the sick. For now it works just fine!
