    I like your video. Your chickens are very spoiled to have oatmeal for breakfast! I was surprised when I started keeping chickens a few years ago how entertaining they can be. Our chickens run to the door of the run whenever any of the family stand by our back door- they are spoiled rotten!

    My website address links to a free infographic that I have created that details 23 elements that you need to consider if you want to create the perfect run or coop. Accompanying the infographic is a 9000 word article that provides all of the best research that I could find for each of those elements.

    If you have the time to read it, I would appreciate your feedback.
