    We got our DD 2 Bearded Belgian D'Anvers for Christmas. She has been keeping them in a bird cage, so the other day we decided to get her a little coop for them. It just came today, she is at work and hasnt seen it yet. I got it put together and set up in her room. She is keeping them inside for the winter and will put them outside come spring. So here are pics of her new coop and babies.

    ok DD and I have been brainstorming about this little coop for next spring. What do you all think about putting it on legs and adding a run under it? It would give her chickies more room to be in We would add a ramp up to the coop part and put a door on the coop to keep them safe at night. Also bury hardware cloth so nothing can dig under. Does this sound like a plan? can we make it work?
