Our new Chicken Coop!

Well, we finally finished the construction of our new chicken coop.  The girls are  now 12 weeks old and they have been in their new home for about 2 weeks. 






I think they are really happy.  They finally discovered the perch boxes inside and slept there last night for the first time.  I was so happy because before that, they were all huddled up in one of the nest boxes, on top of each other and very crowded.  I was a bit concerned about that, but finally they figured out there were perches inside and now they sleep there, all snuggled up.
Chickens are such fun.  I love my chickens!  I look forward to eggs later in the summer.

Hello
Love your blog. You have some great ideas and beautiful pieces. Have you seen this press release and news article? Blogrower on Typobounty is a new game changing concept and could greatly affect online blogs like yours. You can become a registered hunter (it's free to join) and make money by finding errors on internet websites. Secondly, you can submit your blog on their site and increase your blog readership by allowing hunters to hunt for errors on your website. Imagine huge numbers of hunters reading every word. I just thought you or readers might be interested.For more information please check out the press releases at

Barbara, I love your coop and run! I want it! Did you have plans for the run or did you come up with that. I would love to buy the plans to that run if they're out there somewhere.

Thanks,
Ryan

You can purchase the plans from Cleancoops.com. That's where I bought them. Thanks for the comments.

Thanks for all the lovely comments on my coop. I do not have any plans for the run portion. I made them up as I was building. Not too difficult though and if you can follow the plans for the coop itself, you can easily come up with a run that suits your needs too!

Hello!

I just wanted to let you know that your coop inspired my wife, and I am currently building our own coop and run with yours as a kind of template!

Thank you for the inspiration!
Tim
