    4 BCM Roos in Virginia

    Hatched out 4 BCM roosters out of a batch of 6 eggs this past spring, and I've been too busy to find them new homes. I'm in New Market, Virginia.

    Any experience with buying a "Chicken Safe" run?

    I found this site called Chicken Safe Inc. via an ad in Backyard Poultry magazine.
