    Drakey kisses every egg at least once before I can get them put away, LOL!

    My newest coop is a pallet/scrap coop built for the adults to get them out of the temp coop which is an XL kennel up on a work bench. Too many of the juvies have decided they are all grown up and moved themselves into the adult pen. They needed more room!

    [​IMG]

    They have already gotten busy laying in the new coop. Their favorite laying box is actually a litter box :/ The love the shape, LOL!

    Hot thirsty girls - it was 103 today.

    Going to be building another coop on the other side of the car port and will use the old nesting boxed in there. It was in what became the juvie coop and they were just sleeping and pooping on it :(

    The temp adult coop I just replaced.

    [​IMG]

    Just cleaned the whole juvie coop out 2 days ago and already it is full of poop, LOL!

    Very nice. I love how resourceful homesteaders/chicken ppl are. Love the goat milking stand. Hope you don't mind if I steal the idea when I get my goats.
