    My family and I moved to 4.3 acres out in the country back in December, about 4 weeks ago we bought 3 black sex links, 3 gold sex links, a Americuana, a white leghorn, a Buff Orpington and a Cuckoo Maran. They are doing great and growing fast, I just started on their coop, it will be 4X8 with a 8 to 10 foot covered run that leads into a 40 x 40 fenced area that used to be a dog pen. I will have lots of pics later on, just wanted to say hello.
