    Enjoy the new endeavour in fowl funnies. I think your starting amount of keets is a good idea. Cleaning a coop is - well hot and stinky. The more chickens the more cleaning.

    Eggcellent choice of laying hens. At my peeck in chicken raising I had over 300 Buffs. They are eggcelent broad hens also but the city probably won't let you have a rooster.. I have 25 Buff hens at the moment. Waiting for them to start laying.

    I would’ve taken the gun. Got no patience for chickens. I already have a 4” 327 but if I run across a LCR in 327 it’s mine!

    Well, i got the ground ready to build the coop. I got the garden tiller out and leveled the ground and made drainage trench. Then put down the old chain link fence so no critter can dig in. Marked out where to put the poles in the ground. Got the post hole digger, wheel barrel, concrete, wire cutters, saw saw with a wood blade for roots. First hole had root the size of your arm. The Saw saw cut it like butter. I got it dug, pulled the fence over, cut it with the wire cutters enough for the pole. Drop in the pole, level, concrete move to the next. Hit a root a little smaller this time and harder wood but saw saw got it. So cut wire, drop pole in, concrete, level. Next hole no roots. Cool until i hit the underground power cable to the house @ 30" down. I was really lucky as just nicked the shield and got a little spark. I had the hole down 36" and drop the pole in. I pulled the tape measure and it was two inches wide so i needed to shave the hole. That is when i hit it. Why did it hit it? I'm not in line with the box? Ohh, years ago they replaced the line and went a round the burn pile before going to the house. I don't think the line needs replacing just some mastic to seal it but not my call. I know the call out guy for the power Co. he live 15 house away around the corner. I'll see him in the A.M.
    You know the old saying... Don't count your chickens until the coop is built.

    One of the women from church has a number of hens that lay colored eggs, the dark red, blue, and green eggs. There is never any doubt about whether her eggs are store bought, plus they have bright golden yokes. But the same thing, no roosters. There are a number of places that only have roosters, but I think the law has stopped most of that.
    Battle of Wanat: 10 years ago last 13 July, 1LT Brostram was killed in combat killing the last enemy combatant in the outpost. The LT went to the point of decision and made the difference that turned the tide of the battle. The original investigation found the Bde Cmdr, the Bn Cmdr and the Co Cmdr at fault for dereliction of duty. If you want to see what a sarcastic silver star citation reads like, pull up the company commander's silver star.

    Love the .327 Caliber, I have a Taurus M327 and it is snappy with hot 100gr loads.

    Good luck with the chickens. Fresh eggs are great.
