    This spring I saw some really cute baby chicks at the local feed store while picking up dog food. I mentioned them to my husband, who said he wouldn't mind a "few" chickens. We decided 4 should be plenty.....right. We had an 8x10 insulated coop already that was on the property when we bought it so what the heck. Right?
    Now 34 chicks and 5 guinea's later... here is our "few" [​IMG]. And yes, we are enlarging the coop. We are adding on a 10x10 so the total coop will be 10 x 16. They have tons of outdoor space and have access all day. We will be constructing a winter run for them because we are in central NY and get a lot of snow.

    [​IMG] It's to hard to name the SLW because they all look alike! More or less.
