    Hi. I just joined. Have had chickens off and on for about 14 years. At first did not have a fenced in yard and dogs got in and killed our chickens. Now entire yard is fenced and we have 9 chickens of all different breeds. Buff Orp, Delaware, Silkie, Salmon Faverolle, Golden Campine, White Cochin. Silver lace Whyndotte, Americana, and a black Astralorp. May not have spelled some correctly. Also have 2 cats and 1 dog. All of our animals have free access to entire yard but at different times. Looking forward to learning
    more about chickens from this site. Our chickens are pets and egg layers.

    Sounds like you have a good plan to keep them safe. Sorry you lost your previous chickens.
