    I love your perches (Even the one you didn't make hehe) I have a similar ladder for mine and they love it. Your babies are so cute I can't wait until mine get bigger. What size is your coop?

    Wow that's an amazing coop!! They limit me to under an 8 ft by 10 ft here. They didn't tell me how many I could have but all new barn structures for poultry have to be that size or smaller according to the town so I can have lots but they all have to be little lol. I have a big huge barn that I am going to put a small coop in though so I will have a second one that will be bigger [​IMG].

    The coop is a converted smokehouse. My Dad built it prob 40 yrs ago is my Mom's best guess. We used to raise pigs when I was little. When we stopped raising pigs it just became a storage area. I think my Dad would b happy knowing that we had put his bldg to good use!
