    So glad that hatching season is back! I've done a few batches in the past few months.
    Ducklings, Golden Sebrights, Old English Game Bantams, Silkie/Cochin mixes. And 2 sets of quail! That was fun.

    So I thought I'd add some pics.

    Here's the new double coop/run we built last October/November
    Storage, feed access, and egg collection inside the building between 2 separate coops and runs.
    Lavender Orptingtons on the left, Comets on the right.

    Automatic door on the Comet run, so they can free-range during daylight hours.

    They access the feeding area by going under the walls, we access it from inside the building.

    Also lost my "Big Guy" dark brahma rooster, just disappeared, assumed predator.
    RIP Big Guy

    But his replacement, a light brahma named Moonshine, has taken over the reins.

    Wow, WV, don't know where to start...amazing assortment of birds. The Sebrights are gorgeous, those Lavender Orps, Darryl, Darryl, Clara all great. And of course Opie is adorable! Good job on the split coop/run set up, I like that idea.

    Thanks so much for sharing the pictures, there great!
