I'm a newbie and this is my first thread. We were going to get chicks next spring for the first time, but our "adopted" neighbor hens were just eaten by a fox:-( And now I'm very lonely and sad without them! We were planning on fencing our garden and building the coop this summer, so technically we will be ready by September, but I'm not sure that's a good plan for NH. Any thoughts???
Thanks! What a great site:-)
