    Hi all! Greetings from El Cajon, Ca.

    Because of all the detailed info here I finally have my coop set up, secured and have 4 beautiful hens! I spend most of my time in the preditor/pest threads because we are like a wildlife reserve here. I have so many photos and videos of the raccoons and coyotes that we have to deal with. Just the other day we caught a coyote stalking then killing a possum in our driveway! It's all on security cams....brutal.

    I am struggling with figuring out how to post photos and video, but when I do i think you all will love them!

    Thank you for this site!

    Ok so this is what I was told, not sure if I'm saying the names correctly...I have a Production Red, Black Ameraucana, Blue Marans and a Speckled Tan Marans. All are between 6-12 months old and laying an egg a day.

    You have a very colorful egg basket. In my personal opinion, the chocolate eggs of the Marans are the prettiest in the chicken world. Good luck with your flock.
