I have 20 chickens, two cats, 3 dogs, and live on 20 acres in the country. Chickens are my hobby. I am continually working to better my chicken practices and to better my flocks. Don't let a bad day make you think that you have a bad life. Live, learn, and enjoy the ride folks.

We have very simple coops constructed of recycled fence. The larger coop houses our three Golden Comet pullets. The smaller one - our four precious bantams. The chickens freely roam our lawn all day and are protected by a fabulous, feisty banty cockerel that sounds an incredible alarm for his gals! -have numerous trees, rose bushes, and flowering shrubs under which the little flock may seek shelter!

Hi Future Coop Owner!  Get your skids on with your coop, because whenever it's finished you will be sooooo delighted!!!   (I'm from Ireland too, but live in Germany!)  I did too much worrying about my layout, wiring, wood, paint, but probably looking back on it now it was worth it because I didn't have to change anything whenever my chickens arrived.  They make me sooo happy, I actually clean their coop out EVERYDAY!  It is cleaner than my house!  We get 4 eggs from 4 chickens every day, all shapes, sizes and colours!  I will post a photo of everything soon.  Our chickens are so tame now that they actually sit on our knee whilst we read a book!  They are sooo much fun, but you will find that out for yourself very soon, whenever your coop is finished!    Good luck!
