    :)Well hello, we live in central Louisiana and we have just about finished our chicken coop. There are a few more things that need to be done to it. We are getting there. My husband built it [​IMG]. I did the painting on it:)
    I did not know it would be so interesting having chickens:)
    I hope you enjoy the pics and I will add more as the coop changes:cool:
    We have one Rooster named Elvis, and nine chickens, Bardrocks and Black sex links. And we have two Dachshund's Roux and Poppy [​IMG]

    Thank you Joanm, you live in Benton. We live in Bentley, La. So similar in name! I am not sure where Benton is. We are just north of Alexandria. Small world:)

    Hi Wendy - Benton is north of Shreveport/Bossier.
    I know where you are, I was born in Alexandria, lived in Marksville until we moved to Shreveport. I moved to Benton eight years ago. I still have relatives in Marksville.

    Thank you! Our chickens are about six months old. And they are laying quite well I think. Better than I thought they would for awhile.
