Hello all! Thank you for all the advice and chuckles over the past year! My Boyfriend found you last April when we got our peeps. 2 BSL, 2 GLW, 2 EE, 2 SS, 3 cuckoos, and a bantam Cochin roo. Built our coop and run with input from this forum fully lined with hardware cloth = $4K and it's going to take a bear to get in there. Added 3 alpine goats in September. Missed the advice about building a bigger coop to compensate for wanting more chickens . Currently have 3 week old peeps I put under the broody speckled Sussex that couldn't be broke. Nope. Tried all of your tricks and after 6 weeks we had to do it. She's done being a ma now so if anyone wants 2 nhr and a bsl in the nh vt area I have some. Have another mean broody I'm not even going to bother with. That little bantam roo has good fert rate with 2 ladies so we gave meany a clutch last week. Fun times! Oh. I love Roos. My little bantam is the best! And deep litter. Thanks for that!
