We have an Australorp (Louise), two Easter Eggers (Ester and Bonnie... get it? Like Easter Bunny), a Silver Laced Wyandotte (Charlotte), and a packing peanut of sorts Red Star sex-link (Alice).



[FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]I have no idea what I'm doing, but I'm having fun doing it!


Here are a few pictures of the coop as I was working on it. I cleared out and cleaned a 10x10 shed that was packed to the gills with junk, added windows, and made some improvements. I built a raised, insulated coop with roost (just over 10" per bird) and 2 nesting boxes that has (or will have) a pull out hardwire floor over pull out litter pans. This attaches to a 4x6 indoor run. This also has pull out trays for cleaning, but the girls will have a nice deep layer of litter to stomp in (no hardwire). I have a door built to the future outdoor run, but I haven't gotten to that yet. I am just making this up as I go along.
