    Hi -

    My kids came home with 2 chicks leftover from the incubator experiment last year. (How hard can it be to build a coop and run, I thought?!) They were "mutts" and we've been having fun learning to raise them in the backyard. Unfortunately, one got killed by a predator. We now have 2 new chicks to try to add to our lonely Harriette.

    Please check out the coop section and predator threads to help prevent it from happening again.
