    Quote:the coop is 9.5 x 6.5 ... the run is 14 x 16

    as far as chickens go... i only have 14 out there right now... 5 rhode island reds... 3 delawares but one of them will be going back to the pamperedpullet because she... is a he lol... then we have 4 buff orpingtons out there... one americauna (sp) ... and one what i think is a white phoenix... we'll see... i have little chicks that arent really ready to go out yet... and i keep adding chicks... but these were my first chickens ever...

    what we are doing is trying to figure out what breeds we like... we get rid of the boys and we will scale down the girls to get one or 2 of each breed that we are interested in... i know the math says about 15 to 20 total in the coop... and about 22 in the run... we have a few bantams that are just chicks... we'll see how everyone fits in... one thing i wont let them do is get too overcrowded... we'll make adjustments as we go... luckily.. especially after going to nava and el wyandottes chickenstock today.. we've met some really supportive byc people... the pamperedpullet .. eric and le.. have just been extremely nice to us as new chicken people... and we met a lot of really great people today... so i know if i get over my head with numbers there are people to either take the chickens... or help me with instructions on how to cook them up lol...

    Quote:yeah thats a sand pear tree... the fruit doesnt get very big for us.. they've never produced well.. we have another about 10 feet away from that one... so we cut it down to about 6 feet tall and enclosed it in... i hope they like it too...
