    We have 5 hens that a little over a year old and 28 chicks that are 10 weeks. Coop will be divided in half so we can keep my daughters show birds with the flock but not all together. They will get a big back yard that will be divided also. AH is making it big enough to be able to make seperate areas as needed, maybe brood a few of our own next spring. I'll keep the pic's coming next weekend.
