Chicken Coop

 The chicken coop is finally done! Painted and run enclosed completely. And there are chicks in there!

 These big doors on the front open all the way up for ease of cleaning. And the little door is for everyday use by the chick-a-lickies (as Marilyn calls them).
 We've got Australorps, Buff Orpingtons and Reds. Seeing as we can't tell each bird apart, all the blacks are "Blackberry", all the reds are "Cinnamon" and all the Yellows are "Honey".
They've hit their awkward stage.
They have yet to venture down the ramp but they sure like to crowd around the open door. The Australorps...Blackberries...seem to be the most adventuresome so I'm betting they'll be the first ones out.

Yay!!!! Good work, Em. :-)

We had Buff Orpingtons in Missouri. Good birds for both eggs and meat. And they're so pretty!

Chickens were one of our favorite parts of farm life. What a wonderful experience for you and your family. The coop looks AWESOME!
