I own chickens myself, and some of the breeds you specified. They look healthy. What sort of coop setup do you have?

Thanks! They are 15 weeks old now and ALL of them made it through the trying chick period! No serious sickness, injury, or deaths and it was my first time raising chickens...I am SO happy!  :balloon:.

Their setup is a 8x6 coop that is 8 feet high with a 16x8 run attached to it composed of 1/2" hardware cloth and 2"x4" fencing with a 2x4 frame and chicken wire on the roof. It is completely enclosed, predator proof, has insulation on all four walls in the form of two windows, three high wall vents, and open soffits (covered with doubled up chicken wire) under the eaves of the roof. It also has an automatic pop door, lighting, eventual heating, and their feeder/waterer inside.

Here are some updated pics!
