Hello All,
Well I bought 8 chickens on April 8 From our local feed and grain. (2 Days old.)
Kept the chicks in house till end of May.
Got a 100$ Kids play house off craigslist Was way to small.
I have been tweeking coop for a little over 2 months.
1. had to expand 100$playhouse made it twice the size went from 4x4 to 8x7
2. Made a nice enclosure out of my kids old trampoline. Still on going.
future make barn door for coop and door for enclosure.
Really loving my chickens Over all. Due to a shoulder injury I have been using the work as therapy for said shoulder. for the big Stuff I have asked for help from friends .Was nice to see how willing good friends show up to help.
