Hi there chicken fans,
I was already long a fan of chickens (in all forms).
But recently me and my wife built this coop in the woods of our Island Terschelling (53.373613,5.219126).
We are growing vegetables there and now marked a piece for fruit trees and a free part for our Marans chickens.
I bought 10 eggs from a Marans owner in the southern parts of Holland. Had the eggs shipped to Terschelling, found two breeding chicks of which only one finished her task. This lead to 3 roosters and one hen. 2 roosters were transformed in a nice "Thick Rooster Soup" and I bought 4 extra hens to complete my flock of 5 now.
But all are moulting now so no eggs (chocolate) as yet.
We are absolute beginners, so any advices are welcomed.
Piet and Hester;)
