    Well I guess you could say I caught the fever. More chickens, means more space. I don't move the Henspa hardly anymore. Makes it easy to clean the deep litter method, when I need to though. The fence is easy to move if I need to. Love my girls still and enjoy coming to BYC. Boy has it sure ever grown since I started in 2007.

    So far the Henspa has been great. The features of having a heated water bucket, a built in feeder that holds 50 pounds of feed has been nice. I love having the run for them to be able to be in the sun, until I can let them out to freerange. The girls have been fine in the winter, even though it is open. It helps with circulation of air and I never have a smell. So far it has been well worth the money spent. Bill and I took a few hours to put it together. It was really easy and has held up for three years. I plan on taking the back off and cleaning it really good and then staining the outside, just to keep it nice.

    I am sorry for your loss. You do have a very beautiful coop to remember him by. I absolutely love the barnyard design on the front.

    I have a Henspa too but mine is a lot more beat-up. Our land was pretty sloped and my husband kept getting mad at it. It would lose a wheel and refuse to roll -- he damaged it by dragging it around with tractor. Anyway, we are moving to a much smaller place with lovely level ground. Hope to rebuild, weather protect, and get it working again!
