    Hello everyone I just found this forum, never knew there were so many chicken lovers like me. This week though I am practically chickenless. Something got into my coop and killed my 20 hens I had, my prized jersey giant roo and one of my ducks. All I have left is one jersey giant hen(9months old) and one duck male. They are hanging together in the barn and seem pretty happy together. I just ordered more chicks today but they won't arrive til may. I miss my blue jersey roo he really was a sweetheart. any how wanted to introduce myself and find ways to make the next coop safer.

    I have 3 EE chics in the kitchen and 14 eggs in the Bator in Portage County.
    C'mon plug in that Bator. May is SOOOOO far away.
