A Coop In Progress

    At the moment, my coop is being renovated. It's not much now, but I've been making plans to make my humble, quaint henhouse a pretty, noble chicken coop. Planning things is always exciting, and I'm using my egg money to save enough to make my chicken coop dreams come true!... [​IMG]

    Door For My Chickens

    The door for the chickens is the most exciting part. They should have a door of their own too! It's also nice to open it for them in the mornings without a huge draft blowing into the coop. So I'll only have to use the big door when I collect eggs and clean the coop. This door I'd probably have done in the next month or so. Whenever I can persuade my dad to help me with the construction! [​IMG] I hope my chickens will appreciate all this! [​IMG]

    MY COOP AT THE MOMENT (before photos)


    I nailed up these feed bags to make my nesting boxes darker, and more sheltered from the wind and drafts.



    Where the egg laying magic happens!

    Very usable coop, but personally I wouldn't want it anywhere in sight. :D
