    The girls had their first night out on their 90% recycled material coop/tractor. They slept perfectly (unlike everyone else inside the house)., and where let out at about 8am. to free range and stretch their wings.
    They are very happy girls.

    Still figuring out whether they should have water/feed inside coop or down in the run, or if food should be on feeder or straight in the ground. (they always spill it anyway)

    We love our chickens [​IMG]

    You know it doesn't look like it would be big enough for more than 4 full size chickens. I do love it and would use it to keep breeders in.

    We have 4 chickens in there; but we're planning to make it bigger if it looks like they need more space.
    OH, and one of our girls might be a boy....so actually, it might be just 3 hens in there...
