Hi! Been lurking a while, reading up on coop designs, and thought I should finally introduce myself. I'm Rosalind--CranberryBirds directed me to this site, I'm so glad! Lovely and creative coops you guys build! I just got 5 Araucanas, 5 partridge Cochins, and 6 Buttercups from Cackle Hatchery. One of the Buttercups was a little droopy on the first day, but s/he perked up the next day. My husband made a big deal about how the first noisy chicken at 5am was going into the stewpot, but he also has started naming them cutesy names, after we agreed to name them after terrible dictators so we wouldn't mind having to kill a sickly or aggressive roo. And he picked up one baby birdie and cleaned a pasted vent, so I think he's warming up to them... Just wanted to say hi and thanks for the coop-building ideas.
