    Hello all,
    I just got 4 chickens today from the auction, 3 Hens and a Rooster (hopefully that's what they are!). I live in Maple Valley, near Seattle and have been lurking for the past few days reading up on chickens. I got a coop that is about 5' X 8', 6' tall with 4 nesting boxes.
    The 3 hens get along with each other very well and have obviously been handled alot, the rooster on the other hand is new to the bunch and isn't much liked by the hens. I hope they learn to get along.
    Enough of me rambling,I look forward to contributing to the forum.
    Thanks, Ron

    Thank you all for the welcome.

    I don't have any idea what type of rooster he is. I am hoping he gets along better with the hens soon. He isn't very big.
