    New backyard chicken owner here! So glad to find this community :)
    My partner and I have just adopted 3 pullets: 2 black marans (Buckbeak and Hennania) and 1 golden-laced wyandotte (Fawkes). They are all approx 3 months old.
    We built our coop from some plans we bought off etsy, and we had a blast using power tools and making something beautiful with our hands for the first time. We decided to go with a chicken tractor, since we have about 1/4 acre of mostly flat grassy backyard. We also have a cat named Joanna, who is currently treated like royalty, but we plan on having kids soon so he better enjoy it while he can! IMG_4228.JPG IMG_4237.JPG IMG_4267.JPG
