Hi! I'm a new chicken mother this year and I'm thrilled I took on the new roll. My first and foremost goal for my feathered family is safety from predators, which at 12 weeks so far so good! Lots of research and hard work went into preparing their new home and we are probably a bit overboard on the set-up. My husband says it's grizzly bear proof! So time will tell I have had many questions come up so I'm sure you'll hear from me often. Thanks for all the great info so far BYC!
