Greetings chicken lover & folks of all poultry... Well 4 of my 6 girls (all RIR) are making it through the winter in WNY (Buffalo/Rochester area, and producing eggs well, they LOVE a head of green cabbage every 2 days!! can't keep the heads "in stock" at home from the grocery store!) So I have ordered the "back yard blend" or whatever it is called by one of your advertisers here at the Forum. In April I am getting 10 more hens, 2 ducks, 2 turkeys, and 2 geese, the later "2's"are all straight run. So since my chicken coop holds 6-10 chickens (the total hens will be 14 ??) I figure on making a larger one my self. I have looked at some of the A-Frame models...does anyone have this style in use since it is hand built I guess? Also any recommendations raising the other poultry....keep turkeys and other foul apart during raising??? Thanks Jim Brown Lockport NY where "the girls are happy" & greet all visitors!
