    My husband and I bought our first 14 chicks June 24th.
    I never knew how much fun chickens could be, or how
    much work.
    My husband had built a beautiful chicken coop(condo), and
    is now working on the run. Next will come the nesting
    boxes. He wants the boxes to be accessed from the outside.
    Any one have any suggestions or plans?
    Thanks,
    J&K

    Thanks, will check it out.
    I've been signed in for about
    an hour now. This may be as
    addictive as the chickens!
