    New to this forum, we are in New Zealand (originally from UK) and have decided as there are no major predators as in the UK to have a few chooks
    So whilst doing some house renovations we saved anything that we thought we could use. My boys 9 & 12 wanted to make it and so with a little help from dad they started. 3 weeks later it's finished and I'm so proud of them :D

    So today we went to our local animal rescue charity HUHA who rescue battery hens and we got these four lovely ladies, Hope, Lucky, Dozy & Doris. They seem to be settling well and the boys can't wait for an egg. Will keep you updated :)

    Hi :welcome
    Glad you could join the flock! Your boys have made a lovely coop there for your hens! They look very happy. Wishing you the best of luck with them and hope your Boys continue to enjoy them. Chickens are great for children teaching them how to care for animals and getting them out into the fresh air.

    Be sure to ask any questions you may have, everyone here to help. Enjoy BYC I am sure you will :frow

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to our flock. You're coop is very nice. Your hens have almost certainly seen their best laying days at the laying house, but with good care, you can probably get another year or so of decent laying from them. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck in getting those eggs.

    That is a great coop and know you are all proud of the result.

    Those are lucky chickens, and hopefully will give you some eggs.

    Good luck with your new flock.
