In May 2009 I got 2 hens that are probably Australorps of mixed parentage. I live in Lewisville, NC where I grow cut flowers and strawberries you-pick. I built my own coop after reading Story's Guide to Raising Chickens, and after subscribing to Backyard Poultry for a few years. My hens let themselves out each AM into their run. Then I let them out into their large pen for the day. This was, I do not have to get up with the chickens to let them out of the coop. I'd enjoy talking chicken and meeting local gals for garden and coop tours. Email me. Robin
