    I know almost nothing about computers, but I know a lot about chickens and want to communicate with others about the birds. I hope I'm putting this note in the right place. We are in planning mode for a "real" coop since our little brood, 9 assorted banties and a Ancona rooster have made do with 2 rabbit hutches. Titus the roo goes into the underground "rooster security battery" at night to muffle his crowing at 5 am, which my neighbor would never tolerate. The "battery" is a large sprinkler valve box, from Home Depot, with straw bed and two ventilation shafts. Works great, but if I could design the new coop with insulation and tight windows, maybe he could sleep with the hens. Any thoughts on this-- it's the city chicken problem.

    Well hi there. Welcome to BYC. Chickens in Manhatten Beach?!!!!!! One of our close friends lived there and we stayed with them for about a month some years ago. What a GREAT place to live. He was a block from that gorgeous beach!

    Good job pulling off a roo there![​IMG]

    Really?!! I'm new here too. I live in Torrance!

    What kind of bantys do you have? I started out this spring with 6 and now am down to one and "working with" animal control to keep her.

    Do you have really quiet hens? I had a noisy silver seabright and someone filed a complaint against me.
