    Hello! This is a nice board, thanks! I have 12 hens, mostly black austrolorp, or ba crossed with Rhode Island. My roo is ri x ba. And he is a nice bird. He eats out of my granddaughter's hand. We keep them in a mobile coop. We built a nice shelter on the running gear of an old hay wagon so it can be moved around the farm with the tractor or truck. Before that, the hens were being picked off by weasels from inside our old barn. We felt it was easier to build this new shelter than to seal all the holes where a weasel might enter. and bonus, we can move them around the farm.

    Thanks. I'm trying to see how to post pictures. I'm on an iPad, so not sure if it will allow me or will I have to upload pics to a 3rd party site and link to them. I'll post a pic of the mobile coop if I can figure it out. [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC. A picture of your portable coop would be good - sounds like a great idea.
