Since I am getting THIS CLOSE to having my own hens I've been reading this forum & the Managing Your Flock one obsessively. So far my Cliffnotes say I can: *feed my hens when I feed my horses: early in the morning and again when I get home from work. They'll get appropriate feed - starter or layer - for their age & if they are laying *leave them out in the (fenced & roofed w/netting) yard for the day with access to food, grit & water <they will be able to go into the coop for shelter from weather if they want OR *let them out when I get home from work until dark, then tuck them in for the night *use the same pine shavings I use in the horses' stalls for bedding/litter in the coop & nestboxes *setup roosts at 18" angled to 2' - I stripped the bark from some branches about 2" in diameter for these. Would 2X4s on their wide sides be better? Poop board is a piece of plywood lined with linoleum placed underneath and extending about 4" from either side of the roosts. Can I line this with a garbage bag for easier cleanup? *make 2 nestboxes for 4 hens from old fruit crates, set about 1' off the ground with access by ramps (2X4). I setup one crate on end between the 2 for privacy so they can't peck at each other Anything you pros would want to add or change? Do I get a B+?
