Heres a few quick pictures of my coop progress over the weekend.

Showing my skills! I wear that nail bag like I was born with it :) .
My little helper
Wire up. The picture doesn't do it justice, it has more bubbles in it than a hot tub full of...
It looks like something did eat some of it, and I took better pictures and you can see a egg that was probably about to be laid laying next to it also.
I don't think I have ever seen a dog in my backyard in the 3 1/2 years I've lived here but it's possible.
Well this is a bummer.
I forgot to lock my chickens up last night for only the second time since I've had them and now ones dead today!
Honestly I don't know if it was during the night or not because the way my coop is designed they go thru the covered run thru a 16" x 16" pop door and up onto a...
My only experience is with MPC and I got just what I ordered 8 hens 2 roosters all healthy and active when they arrived and they are now laying their first eggs at 21 weeks.
The nice thing about MPC is how few you can order and they are packaged superbly.

My eight Plymouth Barred Rock hens are over 20wks old now and still haven't laid me a single egg yet. Grrr
Most of them have real red combs and wattles and some of their combs are getting really big as well... can't say I've really heard the egg song much but I don't have much time to stay home...
Any of the listed guns will kill a coyote but most of the time you will need something can reach out and touch from a little father away.
Depending on what SKS you have and how accurate it is I think it would be your best option.
Drink some coffee and read the thread again.
(She is going to drown the coon first and THEN use the carcass to train the dogs. )
But Wifezillaaaaaaa (you are going to have to imagine the whine yourself)-
I understand she is going to train the dog (1 dog - a single GSD) on dead...
