    Hi all! My first post, but a long time lurker here at BYC. My young ones (3 Mille Fleurs and 3 Copper Marans) have decided that it's time to quit using their brooder cage. [​IMG]

    I went out tonight to lock everyone up and look what I found-

    They think they are big now! The older girls don't seem to mind, though their brooder has been in the same coop for a while now-

    I gave in and let my broody momma sit on some eggs this year, the chicks are all mutts but you gotta love 'em, right?-

    Great site BTW! Thanks for all the information I've learned while lurking.

    Take care,
    Jim

    Maybe one day the changes will stop long enough for the girls egg production to go up to where it should be??[​IMG]

    Yes. A lot of good it did to shovel the drive out when the main roads took them days to clear![​IMG]

    Welcome....Great Chicken House/Mansion. Very spacious. Your chickens are obviously quite happy by the looks of things. Great Job.
