Chicken Coop finished
all but the decorating. The cement pillars will stay on the backside but the ones in front will be replaced with a solid row of flower boxes. All these weeks of heavy rain put us way behind schedule in getting the coop and run done.
took a pic of the interior before putting up all the walls (below)
below, 3 of the 4 girls we kept (one is hiding behind her sisters, right below the walking ramp). Gave 2 of the pullets to one of the firemen at the firestation behind our back yard. Turns out he has about 250 chickens himself. For the city, 4 was all we wanted to handle. Here they are (now about 10 weeks old?) being introduced to their new home. They climbed up the ramps right away and went up to the roost. Surprising to me, since they haven’t had a roost up until now and I had heard from other chicken owners that you had to teach them to roost by placing them on the board. Not our smart girls.
