    We just purchased our first 8 baby chickens about a month ago. We built them a special coop and enclosed run and we will be starting the fencing for the outdoor run soon! The girls have been outside for a week now. They've already learned to put themselves to bed. It only took showing them twice! We love spending our mornings watching "chicken TV". I could stare at them for hours.

    More to come ... so happy to be here!

    Very nice to meet you Dean & Tina. Sounds like you have some very bright chickens. As long as you are on a roll, maybe you could teach them something else. What breeds did you get

    Great looking coop; we have ducks, but I love the different access door in your coop.
