Finally finished the coop! 25 chicks from McMurray are due in this week.
Wow, so you built the coop first and got the chickens second. Hmm....novel concept! Good for you!
Aren't you the funny one! LOL!!
No.. Shes serious.. LOL You are the first I've seen to build first , buy second..
Way organized, I agree! I had a plan and bought a prefab coop but.....coop was put together after the chickens came home (I knew they were going to stay in the brooder for a little while)....then I had to scramble to put a run together......then I figured out that I did not like the small coop and converted the garden shed to a coop. Have a temporary run on that and some details fon the coop to attend to (framing pop door and windows)And all that since May.....Should have planned better...
So congrats on the coop and run, great job. The chickens will love it....And, really.... I should learn from you...
Looks good. While I was in Maine last week I saw some eagles (in the East holden area) you may concider covering the run with netting to protect your littles from invaders from above. You did a great job.
Great job! Just be careful with that chicken wire. The raccoons and opossum and such can bite right through it.
I thought you were suppose to build the coop first. Only makes sense. I guess I really am organized!
I plan on having hubby put up some protection for the top of the run in the early spring. They won't be going out much before that and if they do it'll be with me outside with them. We do have hawks in our area. I was looking outside one day and heard quite the commotion going on. There was a birds nest in the tree next to the window and I saw a hawk grab one of the baby birds and take off with it. I was horrified!
