I have built a coop and now have my chickens started! I absolutely love my "girls". We enjoy the eggs and just watching them. They know when I come in with the red bowl that it has goodies (cucs and tomatoes) for them. They run all around til I give it to them. Just like when I have a treat for my dogs. lol Love them. I am enjoying reading the articles and glad I found a place for information as well as chicken enthusiasts as myself! Thanks for the great input and have a great day!
