    So flipping adorable!!!![​IMG]

    For the new contest, here's my picture: the coop my father helped me build this summer. As for edible, you'll notice the small raised garden attached where edible things grow, plus the nice nesting box from which I get delicious eggs. [​IMG]

    Lean-to coop 36x96".[​IMG]
    built from: one old screen door obtained for free from my neighbor, two sheets of plywood, a roll of 1/2" hardware cloth, three 4x4 boards for the base, an old window converted into a hen-house door, and a bunch of 2x4s for the frame


    On a random note, all you duck hatchers are making me jealous[​IMG] I SO want little duckies!

    So I'll probably be setting eggs tomorrow and then again on the 11th. I'm I still able to compete in the best hatch rate contest?

    So, I'm considering getting a sweeter heater for my coop for winter. I've read how it does not heat the air, but through infrared light, it only keeps the birds at their optimal heat. So does anyone use these in their coops over winter??
    How do you like it?
    How do you like the sweeter heater?? That's the one I'm thinking of getting.
    How do you like this one?
