Hello Everyone, My partner and I have been following threads on this website for quite a while and have decided to finally join. I grew up raising chickens on a farm, moved to Boston, and moved back to a rural area so I can start again. We currently have 9 Araucana hens, 1 Rhode Island Red hen, 4 Khaki Campbell ducks (1 male - 3 females), and 4 Cukoo Marans. We have our flock in a 30x40 fully enclosed run, and they are able to go into their mansion of a coop which has 4 upper nesting boxes, 3 lower nesting boxes, as well as lots of space to run around and perch for when they don't want to go out in the winter months. We are active gardeners, bee keepers, working towards a minimalist lifestyle and less waste lifestyle.
