Hi Everyone! My wife and I bought a small chicken coop from Tractor Supply thinking we’re only going to have 8 chickens or so. We kept adding to our flock, so I purchased a large coop that was advertised locally. At this time, we have 7 hens and 16 chicks. We have: Rhode Island Red, Light Brahma, Jersey Giant, Buff Orpington, white Leghorn, Java, Americauna, black and gold laced Wyandotte, Cornish Rock, Barred Rock, Crested Polish, Dominique and others. We have a Red Heeler mix and two cats. All our animals are female. The dog and one of the cats love watching the chickens and will round them up when I want them back in their yard. My dog will deny this, but I’ve seen her sleeping behind the coop (in the shade) with a R.I. red snuggled up to her sleeping. My cats do not bother them.
