    she was getting pecked on by others, happily that has all stopped.
    we built a coop for her....now if we get a broody hen, it will be theirs!!! i love the end result.
    currently theres nobody in there. but thats okay!

    sooooo the last 2 pictures are new today. i built a little run. nooo its not totally predator proof. its being used for the small chicken above. and its only used temp till i build a better one. i hung the curtain in the front to the right side, more for the stupid hawks!
    i can enter to the left by climbing over the white fencing.
    now that i look at a photo here, it sort of looks like a shower curtain (lol) owell!!!!

    my daughters in the last photo! she really wanted to be in the picture! [​IMG]

    I am inspired to decorate our coop. A fall theme perhaps? A pumpkin on their porch? I wonder if they would get trick-or-treaters?lol

    thanks!
    i still want some animal in there!!!just dont know what!! i was thinking my house rabbit, but he would be sad, alone!
    then i thought what about 2 sheep??? is it big enough? i would have to build a run, have one side maybe always open, for the sheep to hide and be warm? more like for rain etc.
    i have been looking at sheep, mostly on the sister site backyardherds.com, so we will see?? [​IMG]
