On the way home from a race weekend I called my wife and asked her to get the cars out of our driveway and park them in the street so I could put the motor home and trailer in the drive,5 minutes later she called me to say she had found a chicken wondering in the road and brought it in the house.
When I walked in the house the chicken was sat on my wife's lap happy as could be!
We had a large dog crate in the garage which I put on the porch and that's were she spent the first night.
After a little research on this site the following night I put together a nesting box and a roosting perch, purchased some bedding and made it as comfy as I could for the time being.
The following weekend after more research we set about building a chicken coop and run this is what we ended up with
We now plan on getting a couple more hens to keep Tulip ( that's what my wife named her ) company.
I'm sure we'll have plenty of questions along the way and look forward to being apart of the backyard chicken community
