    Holy moly! How many chickens do you have? You must have a nest box for each one. Coop envy coming on. Nice job!

    After TWO YEARS??? That shabby chic finish you put on the wood makes it look much older... [​IMG] But it looks great!

    If you don't mind me asking, what is the field planted in? It's beautiful!

    ok well to begin with THANKS!!!

    Holy moly! How many chickens do you have? You must have a nest box for each one. Coop envy coming on. Nice job!

    i have 39 chickens including the three chicks that have hatched although there might be more today...

    After TWO YEARS??? That shabby chic finish you put on the wood makes it look much older... But it looks great!

    If you don't mind me asking, what is the field planted in? It's beautiful!

    the coop is probably 50 or 60 years old...i didnt build it..lol...the field in the back is corn that my dad plants...

    wow , its huge how do you scoop all that poop?

    with a 20 gallon bucket and i have this really super old roost scraper i found in the coop...its like a rake but its a solid piece of metal with a really long handle... AMAZING FIND! also cleaning all the bedding out takes 2 days for all my coops and pens...


    Oh my gosh...you have lots of room, and I am totally jealous!!! I'd go overboard with chickens if I had the room that you do!

    im not allowed to go overboard because grandma wont let me..im trying to talk her into letting me have meaties and turkeys but..idk
    also my grandpa and i want to get bobwhite chicks to release in our woods since they are native to our area....

    AGAIN THANK YOU SO MUCH!​
