    But it's true! Bernie is awesome! Taking care of any flock or herd is a lot of work and to add the beautiful construction of the coop..so neat to have him as part of your family OZ. I know what it's like, when I was younger I lived on a horse farm to help with the breeding and I'm still good friends with them today

    Now does Bernie and family do international jobs??? Heheh
