Hi all — thanks for all the good advice (read as a lurker!) over the past 9 months as I’ve been raising my first batch of chicks! Everyone is happy and healthy and laying well. I’m eggcited to build a pvc tractor to get the girls some fresh grass throughout the year, and to build out their secure run. They have a stellar coop (my dad, who has raised chickens his whole life, helped me build it — it’s a fortress!) but their run is still small and minimal — I’m still piecing everything together. Today I let them roam free a little as an experiment — made me too nervous (on my 1.25 acre yard — too many ways for them to get into trouble!) so it’s time to build! Thanks again in advance for all the wisdom. Glad to be here!
