Back Porch Coop

    I admit it, our hens are pretty spoiled! After raising them from eggs, they have become two of the best pets we've ever had, and they are the only pets that actually earn their keep with their delicious contributions to our breakfast burritos. (See how they got started here!)

    My talented husband set out to build an upgrade to our chicken coop when we started getting water damage to the roof. (Click here to see our previous set-up.) We contemplated replacing the roof, but one thing led to another, and he ended up building a brand new chicken condo.

    Originally planned to sit in the old coop's footprint, as we started planning and drawing ideas (and searching Pinterest for inspiration), we decided to put the coop right on the back porch. It will be protected from the weather, plus I can walk right out the back door to check on the girls any time. And, the added bonus is that I can see the coop from my kitchen window!
