CoopChick719's Coop

I wanted to convert an old doghouse into a coop for 2 or 3 hens.  Hubby found a coop on Craigslist with feeders, waterers, heat lamps and a heated base for the waterer for $400. Could not pass up that deal!!       Had to put on some new trim and dig a trench for the electrical.   We added the run which has a welded wire roof plus the tarp, an apron on all four sides, and wire 3ft. up the sides.   Supplies & Storage                          The Roosts                                       Nesting boxes          read more

Girlie Coop

  Well, here it is. My first building project EVER. She may not be the straightest coop ever, but I guarantee you she's sturdy.   The floor and walls are pallets. Originally, the intent was to build the coop off of the ground, but the pallets were too heavy, so I improvised. I've spent a small fortune on wire, but it's just too important to not do properly. Any place in the coop with wire has wire on both sides. The window in front has a plexi-glass cover for inclement weather; otherwise, it will be open. Ventilation is across the top both front and back. The... read more

My 7 chickens <3

      Our chicken adventure started when we moved to Texas about six years ago and got three hens from a local farmer. We later identified them to be a 1 Red Star, 1 Black Star, and 1 Easter Egger. We named them (of course), Luna, Estella, and Apolla.   We more resuced them than adopted them- there were several hundred hens packed into a dirt arena. Here is a picture of one of our hens, Luna, when we first got her :(     Luna is the only one of our original hens we still have today, at about seven years old. Here she is now, laying an egg. Even at... read more
