    Hello! My Sister and I are ( finally !) proud chicken owners and mothers to 6 wonderful ladies ( hopefully all ladies [​IMG] )
    Here are some pictures of the coop and our girls as we am am going to start the run next weekend. [​IMG] We bought the girls at Western Farm Center. We also bought the Coop there but we are making some changes to fit our needs such as adding more roosts , staining/ painting and linoleum'ing the inside [​IMG]
    We have ...
    Fern: a Buff Orp. who is 2 weeks old
    Autumn: a Buff Orp. who is also 2 weeks old
    Acorn: an EE who is 1 week old
    Basil: a Barred who is 2 days old
    Olive: a Barred who is 2 days old
    Margarita: a Showgirl / turken naked neck who is 2 days old
    Here they Areeeeee

    Below is the "before" picture of our coop... it is 5ft by 4ft
    [​IMG]

    Below is the "after" Picture of our coop,, we stained it to protect it from weather [​IMG] we also have a ladder for them to get into the coop which is not pictured
    [​IMG]

    Below is the three older girls ( Fern, Autumn and Acorn) in the coop exploring
    [​IMG]

    Below are our two Buff Orps. Fern is on the left and Autumn is on the right , they wouldnt hold still so we let them roost on our arm for the picture

    Below is our EE named Acorn, she is such a sweetie!

    Below is our two Barred girls. Basil is on the left and Olive is on the right.

    Below is our " Showgirl" / turken naked neck Named Margarita [​IMG]

    Below is the whole gang of fuzzy butts

    ETA : I have a question when would be a good time for the" group" to stay in the coop outside? considering the variety of ages. Our nights here are about 50-60 degrees
    Also for the bottom of our run should we have drainage gravel and then sand? What do you suggest?

    They're beautiful!
    You should wait to put them in their coop until they're at LEAST a month or two old. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I am in no rush to have them stay in the coop because we have been letting them play outside [​IMG] but my sister on the other hand doesnot enjoy the constant peeping because the brooder is in her room haha​
