I'm not entirely new, but haven't been on here in quite a while and wasn't a permanent fixture. I will be now. I currently have 3 young roosters that were given to me to be used as food for my dogs. For some reason I could not do the deed and instead built a coop for them. Now I know soon I will not be able to have 3 roosters together and will have to find somewhere for 2 of them to go but they get along fine right now. I plan to get chicks in the spring, I mean I have a coop now! I'm here to learn as much as I can. I am just having a ball with these guys! I live in central Illinois and also have quarter horses, German shepherds, cats and a tiger salamander. Oh and a husband who is very supportive and understanding about my crazy animal lady status.
