    Our Chicken Coop
    (Yes it is a little big for 2 Chickens. But we love our girls)
    Here are the girls:


    Here is the Coop.
    We wanted to be able to visit with them during the cold winter months in Wisconsin.

    The finished Coop​

    About 1/3 of the material I received from family and friends. The door and windows I purchased from a Habitat for Humanity Restore for really cheap. Great place to find quality windows and doors for cheap prices. I think for the 4 windows and the door I spent about $80. The siding is old barn wood that my father in law gave us. We have 3 outlets to provide lights and heat. We are using the Deep litter method but I still usually clean the coop about 2 twice a week.

    Now you can get a couple more when they reach unproductive age and keep the cycle going :)
