    We just added the smaller section with the black net to try contain the 11 youngsters. The flatter coop is our nursery.

    We rent a house on a vineyard its very nice, and we are able to expand which I will do in a few months, we sell eggs to supplement feed. Hope fully I can get another 15 - 20 Brown Shavers some time, we have a friend who has a small farm she has too many chicks right now (about 30 in total) we may be getting some of them to go with our own newly hatched ones.
