    of course I'm biased as the DW, but it is an amazing coop! brings people in off the street to check it out, nice way to meet your neighbors! update, it's 7 roosters and one hen..... adding a one year old this weekend after the roo's go to the freezer and we now have four more in the brooder. honey, you might have to a small expansion!

    No they don't free range, but other than their normal feed they get plenty of grass which they go crazy for and an occasional hunk of salmon. We call the coop the Chickquarium because we find ourselves just sitting there watching them for long periods of time. It's kind or relaxing. They each have their own personalities.

    That is a really nice looking coop.
    Do you free range them at all? A few blocks from us when we lived there, there was a family with chickens that the dogs and I would walk past and they free ranged. With all the loose dogs, eagles and bears, free ranging didn't seem like the best idea in Kodiak.

    Door was made from old shipping crates.Copper rooster was donated by a friend and set the tone for building the coop. We got 8 chicks thinking a few would be roosters and we would end up with 4 to 6 chickens. Miss judged that one, I think there will be 7 Hens. They are all mixed breeds. They are very hearty and will be great layers says the guy I got them from. Iv'e had his eggs and they are awesome! These chickens are Alaska tough and low maintenance. They also get along well with each other.
