Fall Has Arrived! Confessions from the Coop (TM)

Well, the temperature has dropped about 40 degrees in the past couple days, which has me super happy – I can finally start working on building coops and more videos for y’all!   The constant heat and bugs made it impossible all summer long.   I’ve been wanting to do a video web series about…

Chicken Wire = Dead Flock?? Confessions from the Coop

Someone commented on my latest YouTube video that if you use chicken wire, you’ll definitely lose your backyard chicken flock.   I think it’s funny when people say this or that will DEFINITELY happen – especially if “that thing” runs against the grain of their opinion.   When it comes to chickens and ducks, you…
