My father and I decided we wanted to have some chickens.. Now, we have chickens but the chicken COOP,(my father made a small, basic barn-type coop),is lacking everything it needs to actually be a chicken coop: nesting boxes, good ventilation, good place to store feed,a fenced-in area to walk around in.... everything. All it is is an outer shell but it\'s lacking all the guts, unfortunately my mother and father are now separated and no one is left but me, a mere 17-yr. old, to do anything about the chickens. Is there any advice you could give for me to make this chicken coop more liveable for my chickens.

thnx

just looked at the article posted above. seems like some good info. just start off with making sure the chickens are healthy and have food, and a sanitary and safe living space.
