    Hello everyone. I have been a farmer for 52 years and have chickens most of that time; however, I must say that none of my chickens ever lived such a lavish lifestyle as some of the coops and runs I have seen here in the BYC...lol

    Nice to meet you Dennis. What breeds have you had over the years? Which were your favorites? With your 5 decades of experience, you would be a worthy greeter here, if you would like to pitch in and help. Hint, hint.

    Mostly PLymouth Rocks, RIR, and White Leghorns. I am partial to the PR's, but I recently have a menagerie of Black Americaunas, Easter Eggers, Wellsummers. We'll see how they compare.

    Here is my attempt at a new coop. I have since added nesting boxes, finished the roof and the 32 ft run...completely predator proof as I have 2 fox dens just across my pond...:)
