I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for their help and advice to my "neophyte chicken raising questions"...everyone has been so helpful and supportive. I now have 14 eggs in the incubator (hatch date 4/27), a new 6ft x 8ft coop (thanks soooo much for the design section, that was a lifesaver!!) and now I let my girls out of the run every evening to take a walk in the woods/yard with me for about an hour and EVERYONE comes back....just like you said they would. I am having so much fun (my wife is beginning to think I may need medical help). Anyway, thank you all again for your help. It won't be the last questions I post/ask, but maybe the really simple ones are behind me. Have a great day!!
