Hey everyone, my name is Billy. My wonderful fiance, Jenn, and I have been the proud owners of five laying hens for the last two years, about. Three barred plymouth rock and two golden comets. They are great, we get about one delicious nutritious egg from each of our ladies every day. They have a nice coup with a 20 foot caged run for the day, and then they "free range" in the evenings, less poop by the back door. Everything is going smooth, they get along with the dogs, or should i saw the dogs get along with them. Anyway I look forward to checking out everyone's advice and stories and what not.
