    Hello! My wife and I just started with chickens here in St. Croix about two weeks ago. We have 5 local chickens mixed hens which are various breeds mixed with Puerto Rican fighting roosters. I believe some are called Phoenix. Just yesterday we got 5 new chicks which are cross breeds of Brahma Buff and Jersey Giants. They are about 5 weeks old. Their parents were HUGE! We built a tractor style coop out of reclaimed fence wood and I must say that I will probably not be building the tractor type coop again. It is great size for the girls but not for me to work in. Find attached a link to our build of the coop in our blog and check out some photos![​IMG][/IMG]
