    From south west Florida.

    Just got 4 Hens.

    Husband made the coup and run last week, and I'm really proud of his work... I'll post pic's when I figure it out (phone cam to this site).

    The lady where I got the hens from told me what she gets for the feed, coup and run; so I think I got that covered.

    The White one already made herself right at home in a nesting box.

    Now to keep the dog from barking and chasing around the run/coup!



    Great Site, I've learned some things from here already!!! Thanks

    Welcome to BYC. An electric fence will convince the dog and any predators that the chickens are better left alone.

    Welcome to BYC! I would either keep the dog in a run or x2 on the electric fence; all that barking/chasing is very stressful for your chickens. Good luck to you.
