    We moved to the country 5 years ago and I thought wow, this place needs chickens, and a dog. And that started the adventures of chicken world. We dropped by the feed store and got some chicks without a clue what to do with them. LOL ATM we have 3 RIRs, 4 Australorps and 5 Buff Orpingtons. I say we, but really my husband's only job is to build the coops and runs, of which we have 3 now. That happens when you don't know what you're doing. We started with an 8 bird coop and 6 chickens. Then a mean rooster, Verne, and his favorite girl, Lucy, ganged up on Ethel and took off the back of her head. They were moved to a run of their own and Ethel went into sick bay for a while. Then Shirl got broody so we let her hatch some chicks, which was great fun, but of course they needed a place of their own. Now they all wander all the runs and coops freely, but I can easily close a section off if I need to. BTW, we no longer have a rooster.
