This has been a very fun beginning and very rewarding ! So anyone who has hens and has built a house and or posted any information on how to do things thank you!!! Since just getting started ,I've managed to only spend 20 bucks in wood, ten on nails , ten on screws and that was overkill because theres tons left. Oh and 43 bucks on protective poultry wire , to give the hawks a different bird. Looking forward to sharing the knowledge of raising fantastic egg layers , thx .
