Thank you  ... I have bookmarked the link - it is an excellent site with much information on other items I might need in the future for my hens and my dog Ruby  :)

Haven't been on for a few days but though I'd share that our original rooster died yesterday. Broke his neck not long before we let him out for the day.
Coop was overcrowded a bit but we managed to get rid of 5 chicks the following day so the rest should be comfortable now

So sorry to hear that. We lost the last of our originals last week and it really tugged at our hearts. RIP to your rooster
