Hello all. I have had a mixed breed flock of free range, feed store purchased, layers for years... until recently. My aging dog is no longer able to keep the coons at bay and they broke in to the coop and wiped out all my birds in one night. So I am going to take this bird-less time to reconfigure my chicken systems from the ground up. I have been reading through these threads for quite some time and have come up with a basic game plan which I will outline in another thread. I look forward to getting opinions and advice in fine tuning my plan.
