    I built another coop! This makes me up to 3 coops. It is a grow out coop/eventual breeding coop (maybe), it is 8 x 4 and the run is 8 x 8. The roosts are only temporary, they will eventually will be replaced.

    Well, I don't have pics yet but if you keep building, you'll eventually catch up with me.

    I have 7 different pens, 2 tractors, and will be building 4 more pens so the following breeds/colors can be housed separately:

    OEGB (2 different colors)
    Cochin bantams (2 different colors)
    Wyandott bantam and mixed hen
    Red Stars
    Jersey Giants
    Polish
    Barred Rock
    Japanese
    Sebrights

    I have 3 Golden Buff girls, 4 weeks old now that will eventually go in with the Red Stars

    Next spring I want to get at least 1 girl GLW, SS Hamburg,
    Buttercup, and Golden Campine.
    I'll expand my "Hen Pen" to accomodate.

    I also want to get some Mille Fleur d'Uccles and white silkies.

    Right now I have a 12' X 16' covered shelter that will eventually become 2 8X12 pens.

    KEEP BUILDING -- you have a long way to go to catch up!!

    You know, I sometimes wonder if I want pets that require building and creating things, mostly out of wood, sheds, coops, fences, barns, fences, fences . I feel kinda lost till I think up a new building project.

    Don't feel bad. If I wasn't planning on getting goats in the spring I would be getting more chickens and building another coop too. Instead I have to figure out goat housing. [​IMG]
