Hello yall and welcome to our page! My name is Ashley and Ryan is my husband! Hunter is our 12 month old son and our chicken idea is for him. He loves chickens in books and his Aunts chickens. Since we love animals ourselves and wouldnt mind having some around we started Operation Coop! We have been activily busy since Aug. 14th, 2009 building away. We are trying to learn what we can in the time it takes to build and select the right chickens for us. We love the fact of having fresh eggs and possibly even raising babies in the future. Join us as we build, buy and learn! Welcome to Painted Gems Ranch... home to a family of many 3 horses, 1 mini donkey, 2 dogs, 1 cat, 4 fish, 2 snails and 8 chickens (5 buff orps and 3 gorgeous mutts)!
