Hello (again)
#1
Hi all, most of you remember me when I live in the UK and was on the forum a couple of years ago.  I moved to North Carolina in 2011.  We have since built a coop with a covered run and as of last Sunday, I have 3 pullets!   I have a Black Cochin (Betty) a very pretty Buff Amerucana (Dallas) who will lay blue eggs and a PBR (Daisy).

 

I have written a blog on the building of our coop but was not sure if it was OK to post a link to it?

 

Not having hens for a couple of years, these last few days have been a great reminder!    I just have more predators to deal with this time and the intense heat.   I think my little Cochin may suffer the most,  it was 26C today and she was panting but the temperature can go up to 42C Confusedcared:  Even at night it is still very hot and humid in the late Spring/Summer.

 

For those of you who remember Pollo, she is living the life of luxury in Berkshire and still lays an egg every other day.  I was there last week visiting her Big Grin

 

Hope you are all doing well.

Lovely to hear from you again.  I am delighted you have got some girls again at last - the heat out here matches what you get and I haven't had any losses yet from it and don't hear about any neighbours loosing hens through it either so hopefully they will be fine :thumbup1:

Thanks everyone!  Yes, Plymouth Barred Rock.  She is the most friendly out of the 3 so far.
