Hi. Glad to join up - I've been a closet "guest" for a couple of years. Last spring I finally broke down and bought 3 baby pullets. Two Australorps and a Barred Rock - became wonderful backyard pets and good egg layers. Despite my efforts my two favorite hens have succumbed to hawk and fox, and I'm down to one lonely city cluck. She has been invited to move to the country with a new flock. I start over next month, having learned a bit more about leaving city clucks outside unattended. Anyway, looking forward to building a new coop and getting more peeps!
