    And the kids have all moved in. They love it. I love it. I can sit between the two sections and have all seven lap-chickens lined up on my legs. [​IMG]


    I have 15 more ladies coming on Friday so we finished this just in the nick of time to get the brooder cleaned and ready to go again. Hopefully we'll finish up the outside and their run soon.

    The building is wonderful... I especially like all the storage you have now. I can see you've thought of everything. Just a terrific job.... Thanks for all the photos.

    That looks great!

    I am just starting on my new coop. We are looking for some old kitchen cabinets, but haven't found any yet. [​IMG]

    I have to use a cover on my feeders and waterers or they roost on them and make a mess.

    I have question about your waterer. What brand is it? Mine says not to hold/carry by the exterior handle. I assumed it was because it is such a slim piece of metal that catches the cover and was afraid that it would break. I would love to be able to hang my waterer when it isn't on a heated base.

    Again, fab coop!!!

    It looks great! It's obvious that so much thought went into it.

    Quote:I'm planning to cover the feeder. They haven't bothered it yet, but I'm sure that it's only a matter of time. [​IMG]

    I don't know the brand of the waterer, but I bought it at the local feed store. Once the vacuum seals it's certainly strong enough to support the weight. We did add tiny little clamps to the handle to keep it level. Hanging it is the easy part, trying to fill it without making a mess is the bigger issue. I don't want the plastic kind but I may end up with one eventually.
