    I am in the "research and development" stage of a very small (say, 5 hens) suburban backyard flock. I've been reading books and BYC posts for a while, but would love to see an actual backyard operation. Would anyone out there be willing to show me their set up?

    Thanks!

    We're in Oxford, not very far from you, if you want to come take a look. That's not to imply that our set-up is in any way a "model" one, our coop is pretty shabby compared to what you see on these pages. But we do have a good spot for free ranging our birds.

    Also, you could come to CT Chickenstock 2009, which is on May 3, at my house. You could visit here, meet other CT chicken people, and check out the chickens that they are bringing with them.

    Quote:MHF, can we attach some links to the new thread? I'll try to get to it in a bit, but I'm at work right now. Thanks!
