Hello from Ohio. I'm a third grade school teacher, and I got some eggs and an incubator from my sheep herding instructor (more on that) for my school. Had 22 eggs, hatched 13, 4 weren't fertile, on Mother's Day. I have 5 Cochin and 8 bantam cochin chicks, seven of those are frizzles. I believe I have at least three cochin hens, not sure about the banties. I can keep six in the city, so I am anxious to sex them and find homes for the others. The coop is nearly done, the smell in the house is a bit much, and soon they will be able to go out. I found this website looking for coop designs, and I love it. I am an avid gardener, flowers and veggies, and I love animals. I breed, show and train german shepherds, sheep herd and conformation. My biggest challenge is teaching them to leave the chickens alone in the run. One day, I hope to save enough money to buy a farm.
