Hello all- Adam, new member here. I have had a small flock with 3 hens- one Rhode Island Red, 2 Plymouth Rocks- since February or so. I am hoping that eggs will be coming soon. I had a couple of false starts with my one of my dogs getting at chicks, but after some reinforcements of the coop, all is well now. I recently built a pen for my girls to allow them some free range. I love watching them do there thing with plenty of room. Unfortunately- they are not so cooperative coming back into the coop at night- they seem to prefer to roost in trees- but I am trying to bribe them with scratch each night. Look forward to learning more here.
