We got our first chickens 3.5 weeks ago. They've been in our finished basement in a borrowed oversized dog crate. We put a tub of dirt and sand mixture in their crate and they love it. 3 gold sex links named Hermione, Layla and lady Gaga. Lady Gaga might be a rooster which would be quite funny since my son named her and. He really wanted a rooster from the get go. Then we have 3 black sex links named Mrs. Wesley, Amy Farrah Fowler, Bellatrix. Big Harry Potter fans here.
We live in MA and our weather is finally getting nice enough that we started the chicken coop yesterday. We were able to get a big consolidated shipment crate that big machines are shipped to companies. The measurements are 29 inches x 55 inches. A coworker had recently got and built a coop using the same and it came out perfect.
Excited to be able to get the girls out soon. I think they are getting bored inside.
I took a few pictures.
