New Home New Hens New Roosters

Reuben the Rooster's smiling face. Reuben and 10 of his closest friends (mostly his own children) where left to take care of the farm by the previous owners. The new owners are Jenny and Me.

These birds have a plush coop with heat lamps, heated towel racks, big screen TV and a heated water dish.  But ever since a raccoon invasion they have chosen to roost in a couple of evergreens near the house. Apparently raccoons have also been known to invade the evergreens. So we are going to attempt to retrain the gals (Gallus gallus domesticus) and guys to sleep in the coop. Our other task is to make the coop varmint proof. The latter former to the pryer.
