Been ghosting this site for many months now. Have a page now that I just finished my coop & run and although I have done a few post on other forums thought I should intro myself. Live in Pittsfield Ma with my wife of 42 years, she is very tolerant of the old man. Had Prostate cancer earlier this year and had the prostate removed which left me with some other problem including some nerve damage in my arm which is very slowly getting better. Been feeling pretty D--n useless and restricted. My son in law started keeping some chickens last year and I thought it would be good therapy. The building of the coop has help my hand a little and having a purpose and something to get excited about has helped with my borderline depression by returning my sense of worth. Tomorrow I will go to a cuz in NH to pick up 5 chickens about 20 wks old. the excitement and fun begins. I just wish the rain would stop. Our ground is saturated and any rain floods my run It does drain about 10 minutes after the rain stops but is still wet. We are looking at another 2 - 3 days of showers so depending on how "showery" it is I guess they will just have to get to know their new coop real well.
