Haven't been on here in awhile, but have been trying to keep up with the thread.
Just wanted to say welcome to all the new members, sorry to everyone for their loses, M2H so sorry to hear about Nene, and beautiful pics all.
Thought I would post a few pics of the coops we got over the weekend.
The coop the farthest right came from Tony's (BF) daughter along with the 11 chickens that occupied it. She decided that she was tired of the chickens, so we got them. The 3 smaller coops my sons built for me.
If I remember right there has been a couple people asking about cats in with their chickens. Last year we had a momma cat have 4 kittens out in our coop. She is definitely a feral cat and will still hiss at me on occasion although she is getting better. But she or her kittens have ever bothered the chickens. A couple of her kittens have warmed up to me and want petted and loving every time I go outside now. Anyways, she has had another litter of kittens out there this summer and I wanted to share a pic that I got of them with the chickens
Sorry for the long post.
good to see your post! And don't worry, we love the pics. Never too long a post here I agree, cats can be perfectly fine around the birds. My lil barncat Sassy will not harm even the tiniest chicks.
Anyone interested in a long wooden homemade feeder? I'm going to list one on CL and wanted to check here first. It is heavy, it would take two people to load it into a truck. It is about 6ft long and about 2 feet wide. Openings are on both sides and it holds about 4 bags of food. With most of our chickens being moved to breeder pens I'm not wanting to use it this winter or store it for another season. It has been in storage since March.
