My husband knew I would love to have chickens. He surely put his all into building a coop for me. We began the coop in Feb 2013. I ordered my chicks to arrive 4/15/13 the monday after Easter. The coop was officially finished when the chickens were about 6wks old. We had to move them into the coop then b/c they were pecking eachother in the brooder. The last few months have been delightful learning how to care for the chickens. We are just now coming into egg laying. The chickens provide us with wonderful eggs and hours of entertainment. Here are the pictures of our chicken resort -- (some of these pictures are older so the chickens look little ... they are now 19wks old) I added some decor to make it homey The blue paper is not there anymore. That was just to protect the glass while we painted. And .... I had to put up a chandelier. Adding enough sand took a while. We eventually got in enough to cover the piping my DH put in for drainage purposes.... We LOVE our automatic coop door. No more having to run open the door when we first awake. They got treated to a flock block last month. They enjoyed it. I took it out after a few days b/c it seemed to give them runny dark poop. I wasn't sure that was ok. It seems they love to roost up high where they can look out the windows and enjoy the evening breeze. We let the girls out for the first time two nights ago. They enjoyed it so much. Last night we let them out again. Our family enjoys watching them so much ... we brought out chairs so we could watch them run around the grounds.
