My name is Sylvia. My husband help me build a coop out of an shed that was on the property. It had shelfs in it which we made into nesting boxes, and I got 2 dog runs one panel splits the shed so I have storage in it and the rest makes a outside area for the kids to bug hunt and play. I have 10 chickens now, 7 of them came from a friend of mine (Sadie, Gurdy, CC, Cocoa, Becky, Maddy and Brandy) and 3 (Molly, a silky, and red and Lilly) I bought else where. I also have 3 ducks (Buffy, (her sibling died so I got Sassy and Tiffy) they are Magpies. We have enjoyed watching the 7 younger ones grow and the Buffy the duck. The others were pretty much grown when I got them.
