Ok, here's my place to confess. :| I have a coop that came with the house. My home was built in 1930...so I was luck to have the real deal here already. I live in the city of Seattle. My home used to be on farm land. Land that most farmers took their wares to Pike St. Market. Well I got the chicken bug. So I got 2RIR then 4RIRs....then I saw an ad on craigslist. With my 6 I'm one over the city limit with the land I own. Then this ad put a death to my living w/in the law. Now I'm a chicken rebel. Living on the edge... I found these 5 birds. 2 aracondas (gorgeous) 2 partridge rocks and 1 silver wynndette. All of the hens are 2years old. Here's the thing...these hens where a coop and run that was build for three birds. They where sad. Having all the gals together my reds rock the house. The new guys are doing wonderfully. Just about everyone lays every other day. At the feed store...I got into trouble....I forgot I ordered some Orphs and Plymouth rocks... So, I had to rear these 6 chicks. Yah, I'm nuts. Not to worry the ladies have plenty of room. They have the softest feathers. They are happy. They eat all organic. Run the yard and eat a ton of greens. Example, I havent had to mow the lawn in over a month. In Seattle I still have a green lawn. The ladies have gotten out of the yard a couple of times. The neighbor kids helped get the two reds back home. I had a talk with all of my neighbors besides the meth addict. I gave them all some eggs (which they LOVED) and let them know I have chickens. If they have any problems or issues with them to let me know and I'll fix it. Everyone was glad to get the eggs and, most didnt realize I had the ladies. I love the ladies. The straw in the coop with their poo I use for my garden and coldframe. Even the dog likes herding them into the run at the end of the day. Hopefully we can continue to live with our little farm in the city.
