Thread Starter 

I'm Chri (kree) and I just bought 36 Buff Orpington eggs to hatch out. I've had RReds and sexlink hens before. My kids grew up with chickens as their backyard pets, so I'm old hat at the backyard chicken thing. BUT, we lived in the country and never had to deal with city ordinances, subdivision covenants, or any other of the struggles that some of you do. Our girls also never got sick, so I may be an old hand at it, but I don't have any experience with the challenges :(

 

We don't have any other pets. We are doing straw bale gardening this year, for the first time. We've always done raised bed and square foot gardening, so this isn't a BIG diversion. I'm looking for inspiration for a creative coop from recycled/repurposed materials that will hold up against bobcat, coyote and bear. We were wiped out 2 years ago by a weasel and felt like miserable steward of our animals. I don't want that to ever happen again. 

My favorite activities are bicycling,quilting, weaving, spinning, sewing and making friends :D   I also teach weaving, quilting, sewing and spinning. 

The hubster is a story-teller and a retiree who is almost always willing to jump in and explore new ways to garden, insulate, build, and live as long as I do the research and share the info. 

Looking forward to meeting you and sharing in your enthusiasm for our funny backyard friends.

Hi, Chri, welcome to BYC.  Good luck with the incubation and in the building of a 'Fort Knox' containment system for your birds.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
