Hello BYC folks, I've been a non-member user for over a year. It seemed silly not to join so here goes! I spent four summers dreaming , planning, designing and redesigning a chicken coop. A year a go last April I went for it and bought 4 austrolorps, then 4 arucana's and then 4 buff orpington's. With the help of my dear hubbie I built my dream chicken coop and away I went. These chickens have stolen my heart, they are so much fun!
