    Hello!
    I'm a full time mom of 1 and part-time step-mom of 3 more. We have 3 cats, and chickens! I converted a shed into a coop that is about 20'x8' including inside and outside. We had a chicken massacre lately where I lost 3 to a bobcat, we think, when the coop was accidentally left open at night. We now have a silkie, an americauna, a rhode island red, a plymouth barred rock, a bantam (wood cottage maybe?)and 3 babies (welsummer, golden sex link, and silver laced wyandotte). We have had our backyard chickens for almost 2 years and are loving it!
