    My friend and coworker just converted a detached garage into a coop.
    I gave him my Blue Orp roo and Splash Orp hen, Buff Orp hen, and a lucky
    Cornish Rock hen that came with my fryers. They will free range every day
    on lots of acres and have a wonderful chicken life. I miss them but must be
    strong. [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone. All is well. Just a few bumps in the road on this
    highway called life has made it neccessary to rehome my birds, or at
    least downsize to a small laying flock.


    Kristin, how close are you to Brooklyn, CT? You may be able to hear
    Blue crowing. [​IMG]

    chickens stuck on things to make me smile. [​IMG]
