I currently have an 8x8 coop, built from a recycled crate that used to hold a giant magnet. My parents used to use it as a garden tool shed, but when we got chickens we converted it. However, it's now too small for my 21 birds, so we need to expand. This is basically what it is now: And this is an idea of what it's going to be come October: Right now I only have 1 2x2 window in the back, and I desperately need more. I plan to put in a 4' window on the south side (you can see it...

In memoriam... Buzzy, Barred Rock -- Buzzy, you were my baby girl. You were not a chicken. You were one of my best friends. I could tell you things that no one else would understand, and you'd listen and be either happy or sad with me. I am glad you're out of your suffering now... But I wish to God you were still here. You were my best girl. I love you Buzzy... Buttercup, Barred Rock Squiggles, Barred Rock Calico, Barred Rock Lacy, Silver Laced Wyandotte (on the right) Rosey,...

Buzzy was my favorite Barred Rock hen. She got her name from the buzzing noise she made as a teenager -- voice changes and all that. I randomly had said to her one day, "Why, you're buzzing!" And it stuck. She would be "Buzzy" forever. One day she and her buddies were roosting in a tree, and I went over to visit them. All their feet were at eye level, so I checked them. When I got to Buzzy I noticed the scales on her feet looked odd. For a long time I thought perhaps she had leg mites,...
Henny was my oldest chicken, a Black Australorp, going on 8 years old when she passed. She was the top hen, dominant biddy, coop queen, et al, and ruled with an iron feather. She survived multiple hawk attacks, fox raids, illnesses, frostbite, heat waves, etc. and went strong until she died on March 2, 2013. My other pages...
