    **A very funny chicken Video by my daughter**

    Here are our first girls (and roo) at 12 weeks. We raised 10 and kept 6, 1 EE, 3 RIR, 1 BR, and 1 LB(one is a roo)


    We have 3 DDs who are enjoying the chickens (and picked the color for the coop.)
    We live in a suburb of the Phoenix area so we have to worry more about heat than cold.
    Our coop is an open air style with a homemade feeder and automatic nipple waterer.

    Our chickens at 21 weeks!

    Here is a picture of our coop and pullets at 7 months.
    (The rooster found a home on a farm .)

    The chain is just put up there so I could take the picture. It's usually hanging down holding the feeder. The feeder is made out of a bucket and a plastic planter tray. (see pic 2)
    I have replaced the chicken wire with hardware cloth since this was taken.

    How does this fair during monsoon storms? Do those chains attach to some kind of shutter flap?
