I'm not new to chickens, but l do learn something new everytime I do research on them. I have 10 Australorp hens, 2 minature Cochin roosters, 1 white broad breasted turkey hen. I just love to sit and watch my chickens. It's relaxing after being at work all day. We also have 2 dogs, many cats (mostly outdoor) and fish. I came across BYC looking for coop plans. I would like something bigger for my flock. I've lost way too many due to my current coop being raided by raccoons or the occasional fox coming in the yard. They are in a store bought coop currently, but I'd like a run for them to explore, a nice BIG run. I'm so excited to start checking out threads and see what everyone else is up to. Happy Clucking!!
