3 weeks into turning my little corner of paradise into a farm, we have 5 layers.... now, 2 Americanaus and 3 light Brahama. I ended up starting with pullets because of the late start in the season I had. Built a coop out of old packing crates, measures just under 6'x6', 5' at the peak. Lot's of fun so far, just got them to eat out of my hand last night. Everyone is eating, drinking and leaving little piles all over the place, so far so good. Looking forward to lots of good egg recipies.
