Newbie starting with 27 hens and a rooster (well, actually, 21 hens now thanks to a predator probably a fox) and still modifying my coop. Have a 25 x 50 run and the coop is from fence sections and a metal roof. Looking for the first eggs to arrive. The hens were born in the middle of March 2015. Any suggestions and prayers welcomed. Glad to part of such a large site devoted to chickens.
