Been viewing this site for awhile and have based the design of my coop and enclosure on a combo of many of the ideas from others. I'm in Sonoma County, CA, with 8 hens (2 Rhode Island Red, 2 White Leghorn, 2 Americuana and 2 Buff Orphington. Probably spelled some of those incorrectly. Also a Golden Retriever, some kind of cat, a pond with fish, turtles, frogs. Got the flock as chicks in March. Averaging 7 eggs a day now. They eat better than I do. If anyone is interested maybe I'll post some pics. I'm pretty happy with the end product of my design and build.
