My husband and I started raising chickens a little over a year ago and have absolutely fell in love! We tried to free range them last year but they kept flying over into the dog pens. We've learned quite a bit over the past year and now have a full coop with a run, a 5 gallon watering system, and an even bigger feeding system. We have temporary roosts and we'll be adding nest boxes soon as well. We have 2 daughters ages 2 and 8 that love to help with the chickens. (It's a fight to get our 2 y/o out of the coop everyday). We have a total of 31 chickens. 2 for sure are roos. We've been members of the byc facebook page for some time now. Glad to be a part of the forum now as well! Look forward to learning new tips and tricks on caring for our flock.
