I am a new member and would like to share a picture that is worth a 1000 words. I was building a new chicken house for about 50 chickens. Stopped working on it to mow the lawn. And in the picture I'll post you'll see what I saw as I came towards the chicken house. A sign or what??????
We have some Australorps and speckled Sussex as well as a handful of other breeds. Love them. Australorps are very good egg layers of large brown eggs. Good luck with your chickens. If you need any advice, let us know.
