Hi all! Been a long time reader/creeper off and on, thought I'd finally join. Been working on a coop the past few weekends as we prepare to get our first chicks next week. Getting some Black Australorps from a local guy. Getting a handful of chicks to get started (6-10). I've never been a big poster on any forum I'm on, but I love the knowledge and experience to be had! That's what brought me here in the first place! My wife and I also have dobermans we show(ed) and both are finished/titled; Male is GCH and female CH! Hopefully they can learn to at least tolerate the birds, though they shouldn't have much interaction intentionally.
