Hello from Alvin,Tx. Just acquired 3 RIR's & 4 Easter eggers. New to this and got questions already. :D Lurked here a few times before I decided to go for it. Have a friend who raised these birds starting last easter with his girl. They are due to start some traveling and asked if I wanted them. Well about 1k later I built a enclosed and coop and run. He said they had been roosting on a 2x4 so I installed the same the full length on the coop about 6' long, and the coop is a little over 4' wide. Now I have 2 sleeping in the doorway 1 in the window and 1 in the nesting box. lol I did get 2 eggs within the 3st hrs of relocating them. I see another egg in the window now.
