He and Richard built a nice sturdy gate into the chicken run.
I have ordered baby chicks. They will arrive on April 14. I can't wait.
There will be 16 chicks. I wanted a mixed flock of interesting breeds. I chose breeds based on cold hardiness, docile dispositions, and funky feathers. I'm not concerned about whether they are good layers -- we don't need a ton of eggs for two people. There were a few breeds I wanted but couldn't get -- it seems my favorites are popular with a lot of people.
Our flock will be a mix of Blue Andalusians, Ameraucanas, Barred Rocks, Polish, Lakenvelders, Brahmas and Cochins. I wanted, but couldn't get, Buff Orpingtons and Marans.
