    I'm Michelle, from Holland, Michigan. I live about 3 miles from the
    beautiful Lake Michigan shoreline.
    We got our first four chicks in April '07, and then turned an old playhouse
    into a coop. My husband and I also have two sons ('93 and '95 models!),
    two dogs, a cat, a "big" horse, and a miniature horse. I'm looking forward
    to a few more hens over the years--but I don't want to go too crazy!

    The red barn hanging in the window frame is the
    nest box. The barn door opens, so we can gather
    eggs without setting foot in the coop. The garden
    will (hopefully) be fenced soon, so the girls can
    play in the dirt during the off-season.

    Nest boxes have hinged doors, so we can keep the
    chickens from sleeping/pooping in the nests.

    BSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!! I am thinking of doing the stenciled shutter thing too, if I can work it in. I really like the "barn" egg nest, will have to pinch that idea too, lol! Thank you! ;~)

    I love your coop! I also love the wire chicken with the flowers growing in it. Can you tell me where I can purchase one?

    WOW! What a spectacular coop! I am very impressed. Also, your photo of the horses in the fog was amazing... Looks like you went with a cottage type coop too. Check out mine and see what ya think: Again, you did a great job with your coop and thanks for your post!!
