    I phoned the Editor of our local weekly and told her about my coop. She was thrilled and put it in the paper.

    Way to go, Phil! Not only are you showcasing a wonderful hobby, you're furthering THE CAUSE of "Backyard Chickens Are Doable!" [​IMG]

    Anyone looking at those pictures and fearing an influx of "smelly, noisy, ugly" chicken coops would be won over. Congrats on a terrific job in all respects. [​IMG]

    Hey Phil, YOUR page is actually my bookmark for backyard chickens! Your tribute to your Dad is my favorite part. Well done.
    And having spent some time admiring your coop, it is great to see you in the picture to put the run size into perspective!

    Great looking set up you've got there! [​IMG] It's good to see some of the local papers down there doing some possitive pieces! I moved to southern Idaho from the San Bernardino area about 5 years ago. After spending 30 years in that valley I think about the only things I miss are some of the restaurants I grew up with (Rosa Maria's, Surfer Joes, Redlands Gourmet Pizza, etc... [​IMG] ).

    Keep up the good work!

    Quote:Thank you all for the kind words. I'm not as hefty as the picture shows though, I think the paper stretched the picture sideways to fit the colum....Yea, that's it. [​IMG]

    Wow! That is sooo cool! I love the headline, it tells it like it is! [​IMG] I am willing to bet more than a few people will be inspired by your great coop!
