    It blew part of the run roof off. Good thing I was going to the lumber yard today.
    Anyone want to come help me build a coop in a day?[​IMG] I am turning the dbl rabbit hutch into a coop with run. Then I will have to buy a big dog crate 'cause that hutch was my large batch brooder and quarantine.
    I guess losing it will help keep my chicken math down ... NOT!

    Bedlam refers to a number of things. The traditional definition would be a scene of high activity, borderline pandemonium. Bedlam is also a town/village in England, in a district traditional known for its spas. So it also refers to the manner in which you keep your hens, well kept and pampered.

    Incidentally, it also appears that Bedlam was the name of an institution for the mentally challenged - but that wasn't the reference I was going for.

    Diane, can I jump in and ask too??? pleaseeeeeee???

    What is the best breed for meat & friendly too?

    Do they need a wire/mess covered run?

    Can they free range and go in coop at night?

    They can be in with chickens?

    Can you only have one male and female together?

    anything different medically health wise?

    Feed? Is it cost effective? how much feed for just a pair?

    How long till you can butcher, and how hard is that?

    poop, how hard on the bedding are they?

    They scratch like chickens right?
