    No more chickens in the trees no more chickens on back side of coupe yup it was too small it was the first coupe built for them for their five WK old bodies so when 12 grew up it was crammed.. lol so glad it was warm then and I'm sadly missing two chickens I don't know why but it's been since New coupe so it's not cuz of them being outside their coupe.. Dissapear they did two of them.. I'm down to 10 but here's what I did ...
    CAMPER NOT BEING USED.. NEEDS GuTTING ANYWAYS ...
    makes a great chicken coupe.. Last quarter section of my 30 ft frolic tow behind camper (front three quarters still useable not a chicken coupe) brood heat light set up all kinds perches different heights gonna get heated perches and heated wall mats but check it out.. Girl in Maine got smart!!!!

It's closed now but here's some day pics last one in lineup with trap door open.. They love their new condo.. Have a whole laying section too
