Hi I am Joyce and I am a local pet sitter in my own community and it includes carrying for chickens for farmers who need to go out of town. I bought a pre-fab coop and added supports and better locks to it and made my own run. So Last March along with my two resident dogs, one of the chicken farmers gifted me initially 9 chicks: 3 buff rocks, 2 EE's, 1 Austrolorp, and 3 Speckled Susses. I move the Buff rocks on to a larger chicken farm because they were very aggressive towards me and the others. I lost one speckled in a freak accident when she scared herself so bad during a thunderstorm, leaving me with 2 EE's, 1 Austrolorp, and 2 Speckled Sussex. They will be completing their first year this March. I am still in the learning process but really enjoying the chickens. I am thinking of adding this spring 1 Austrolorp, and getting two cochins....I am also planning on expanding the run this spring.
