    Finally have pics of new coop and some of the
    chickens. Not sure if this is going to work. So new to this.
    The chickens have been living in coop for about 5
    weeks.

    That is so CUTE. Love the little window, star, hanging flower pots, and the bed headboard/footboard.

    I bought a wrought iron full-size headboard years ago to put in the garden somewhere but it's still sitting in the shop. You inspire me to do something with it.

    Thanks for the replies. Took alot of work
    and money, and hubbie was eyeing for his
    own, thought it was to nice for chickens.
    As for the nest boxes-free, left behind
    by previous tenanat farmer. Did have to
    clean up, paint and replace roost boards.

    Great job to both of you TripleH and MtnAngel! They both look awesome. MtnAngel, it looks like a lot of woods there, any issues with predators??

    Your coop it adorable. I love the green and white combo. Very fresh. So pretty with the purple flowers. Looks like a peaceful place to relax in the shade.
