    So excited to be able to be a part of something so delightfully informative and so entertaining on the webernet!!!

    I hope to be able to have something to offer in return for all of the knowledge and experience I have been able to draw in these last several months.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. X2 on all of us having chicken fever. Chicken math usually follows shortly afterward. :eek:) Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. What kind of pullets did you get?

    Well...since you asked [​IMG] first flock, welsummer rooster and hen, barred Holland, 1 ameracuana blue(slate?) 1 black.

    During fee range daylight with plenty of tree and shrub cover lost Holland and blue amer. to fox. [​IMG] sadder but wiser. Now 1 wellsummer roo and hen, 2 black amer. 2 blue, 2 RIRs. One is ginormous, how can you help but call her "BIG MAMMA"?

    BIG pen like 50x100 electrified almost done...i wont be satisfied til bird netting is on top just in case of owls.

    Out to pasture
    Electric fencing sounds good and a run cover - owls are mostly after dark and your girls would be back in the coop but, it would also defend against hawks that drop in as the mood hits them. Also migrating hawks grab chickens to fuel them on their trip.

    You have some colorful layers. I love the chocolate eggs of the Welsummers.
