    Actually she was pretty quiet! I wasn't even sure if she laid when she left the coop. My cochin who also just started to lay is extremely loud with her egg song.

    Help!! Ventilation problem?

    it has a door, but we did it internally with a pully system. it just makes it easier to lock them in at night and let them out in the morning.

    Help!! Ventilation problem?

    That is a really good idea! we do have an issue with straw spilling out. We put a waterproof mat on the bottom of the coop so that the straw isn't directly on the wood.

We noticed the straw is damp in the coop though. is it due to lack of ventilation? what else should we improve? (nest box isn't being used because they are too...

    9 week old EE pullet or cockerel?

    Those are helpful pics! Very pretty rooster! I will post pics of mine when it reaches the 3 month age, so about two more weeks, then it will be easier to compare! Ee are tricky little birds.

    I posted her baby pic a few above your comment. She was all chocolate. In the pic above she was only a few days old. I added a pic of her when she was a few weeks old in the awkward teenage stage (below) lol
