    We are new to chickens and have been enjoying every minute......

    The last few weeks have been very crazy for us as we have had a family member in the hospital for surgery (and they had every complication in the book!!) While I was running back and forth to the hospital my wonderful Hubby got to work on the Playhouse Coop. We had already purchased it from Craig's List and had some ideas but didn't get the time to put it together.

    Here are a few pics of what my Hubby put together for "the girls"....... Hope you enjoy.

    The girls 1 week old at Easter time.....

    Thx for the quick feedback.....

    We are really enjoying the chickens and have been lucky with the coop..... they all seem to like it so far and it only took one night to get them trained to go inside at night. After placing them inside for on the first night, they were all snuggled inside ready for us to close things up on the second night (and every night since!).

    Your coop is cute as all get-out, and your chicks are adorable. That little dark easter egger looking one is especially pretty. [​IMG]
