    I'm new here of course... I've been using books, falling back on when I owned hens as a kid and this forum to help me with decisions on breeds, spacing, etc... I am going through a big debate on an upgraded cage so I'm about to post in here and finally joined. Some decisions made on your own are just too difficult...

    Me, I have 7 hens... 4 Salmon Faverolles and 3 Blue Ameracauna. Now I have 7 more coming, 3 White Cochin, 2 Barred Rock and 2 Blue Splash Marans. so I'm super excited and anxious about going through the delivery process and baby stages again and especially getting one big coop. I'm insistent on one big housing area with a giant run.

    I'm married, have twin boys... love them, love my birds! Lovely to meet everyone :D

    Welcome to BYC - a cover on the BIG run will make it safer and offer some protection from the elements.

    A large coop and run make things altogether nicer for you and more comfortable for the birds. You have some nice breeds in your mixed flock. Hope the kids enjoy them, it's always great to see kids involved with taking care of animals.

    It's nice to have you here!
