    My girls love grapes, too! I think they swallow them whole.

    I really like your coop setup! And the way you did the veggie garden around the coop is a great idea. My husband always wants things to look like they came out of Better Homes & Gardens but to me, a coop is a coop, whatever. But yours looks so nice I'll show it to him and maybe he'll want to do a setup like that - thanks!

    LOVE the coop and run set up . . .that is the way we are going to do ours. I even printed your picture off when it was first posted so we would have a guide. Love the idea of the privacy fence on one side. Cute hens and they really do love those grapes!!

    They are beautiful little girls. Mine love grapes, blueberries, honeydew and watermelon. OMG in the summer when it is hot, I buy watermelon for them and refrigerate them for a day or so and let them get real cold and then cut it in half and put half in their run. They love it and it helps them cool off. They also love steamed rice and baked sweet potatoes. Wow they go nuts for that.

    Thank you all for the nice compliments. There is another video link on here that shows more of our setup. I will see if I can find it if you are interested. [​IMG]

    Just
    last night we added a lexane window to the back of the coop for more light. I think they were having difficulty mounting the roost. They all wanted to get on by the pop door.
