    Baby Brahams are 2 weeks old now and their coop/run is ready and waiting!! We originally ordered 5 hens and 1 roo but the company sent us 6 of each!! The shipping order said males included for warmth!! What do you guys think of the coop?

    We ordered from Purely Poultry around Oshkosh WI. We ordered Light Brahmas and we think the hens are Buff instead. Time will tell if the coloring changes to white and black.

    +1 on the PVC feeders also, I'm building my coop now. I might have to incorporate that idea. Thanks for sharing.

    PVC feeders are very easy; all you need is a 4 foot length 3” PVC (or whatever size suits your situation), an end cap, and two PVC elbows, I believe we used a 45 degree and a 22.5 degree to get the desired angle and then we shaved the top of the final elbow (sawzall) to allow for a larger access point. They are very easy to make, fairly inexpensive, and you can also use them for dispensing oyster shell, or grit. Later I’ll take a few pics of one disassembled so you can get a better idea.
