I'm not new to chickens but it's been a while. When I was growing up my folks had a commercial chicken house so it was more like work than fun to me. Now that I'm older I enjoy the small flock I have (7 Rhode Island Reds and 3 Buff Orpingtons). I'm trying to hatch some e g g s and in the process of planning to build a nice hen house for them. I found this site and have enjyed getting ideas for my hen house so I thought I'd join you all.
