How it happened---
I love my chickens! I am completely addicted. My husband built me the cutest coop for Mother's day 2011, and we started with 4, then 6, then 7, then 8, then 9, then two got eaten by my dog.....then back up to 8, then had to give a mean EE away, then 2 more in the winter, 2 more, 4 more....oh my I have lost track in the twenties somewhere... So....the DH built on to our existing coop and run this Spring 2012. Goodness... I could not go back to having zero chickens, no way. I spend so much time watching them and just having fun being their mom. I may never have a clean house again
Me, my girls, my morning latte! This is the 'original' LA CASA......
Ok then I got chicken math. IT was pretty bad...... It is more like Chicken geometry.
The second bigger version on the left with the mini coop on the far right end:
Now there are four coops.......
Not finished with the gates, hardware and wire yet.... Another Duplex coop built 2014
NO this one is not big enough, working on earning enough brownie points to get something a little bigger Spring 2014.....hehe...
Never ending projects!!
