    ANSWER: My wife Debby and I have been married for 40yrs., Deb is a Master Degreed Mental Health Therapist and Counselor and supervisor of Mental Health Hospital. I am a Ship Captain, recently retired and I also build custom fishing rods and have been busy improving our urban homestead and taking care of our five cats. The garden take up a lot of my time right now and I think we want to build some type of chicken tunnels around our fence and garden. With the coop at one end.

    Greetings from Kansas, CaptJim, and [​IMG]! Great to have you aboard! Sounds like you and Debby lead an interesting life. We share some of the same hobbies. What do you mean by chicken tunnels?

    Hi Cap, it's nice to have you here! Tell your wife for me she has a lovely name (coincidently it's the same as mine, spelling-wise too) [​IMG]

    I always thought the tunnels were an excellent way of getting the chickens some protected outdoor time plus keep them out of the garden.

    Good luck with all your plans and thanks for joining us!

    G’Day from down under CaptJim [​IMG] Welcome!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock when they arrive, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG] Lots of cat lovers also, including me.
