    Hi all, this will be quick- I am tired and need to sleep.

    My name is Beth, I am married, 2 kids (17 and 13) and teach second grade. We recently moved to 5 acres and obtained a not so nice cymani roo from a neighbor. We named him Mr. Focker. ;-) Neighbor also gave us a hen who was getting ahem....worked to much by her flocks roos. Anyways we had Mr. Focker for a week, fell in love (even though he was rude to me too!) when sadly a couple of coons came around..... :-(

    Now, we have a flock of nearly 40 with several different "coops" that hubby has built (one we call the Chicken McMansion because it is better insulated then my house!)

    I am a research freak and have read so much about chickens (a lot from this site- thank you!) that when one of my polish babes got sick I knew fairly well what to start off with. Unfortunately it isn't looking so good so I figured time to post in the emergency thread for others thoughts....

    Thanks all! Off to try to get some sleep!

    Beth
