We are going to start judging this contest soon. I was hoping to get a few more entries first ;) but it looks like our coop builders are snowed in at the moment!

Our first attempt at raising chickens...we bought a pre-fab coop for our three girls and I made some minor enhancements to dress the place up a little. They seem to enjoy their humble abode, now only if they would start paying their rent!

 

An upgrade was made to our pre-fab coop. I had extra shingles left over from a real roofing job and decided to fancy up the place.

I will try not be long winded, the coop started as a dream to have some chickens, I looked at the Amish chicken coops and said I could build that. I drew up a set up plans and it just got bigger and bigger by the time I was done it had electricity, running water, tv, covered porch. Then we started on the run, decided it should be covered to protect them from predators, although they spend most of their time free ranging. The run also has a compost pile and a water system. The reason for the TV (everyone asks) when they were chicks and ducklings they were in my daughters room who liked to fall asleep to the tv so when the tv would come on, they would all quiet down and watch it. To this day when the tv comes on they all go to their spots and watch chicken run. My future plans (this year) I am planning on putting an addition on for feed and extra supplies, I also am adding a second section to the run in case any of the birds need to be quarantined.
