    More like chickens, they're growing so fast, my only regret is that I wish I made the coop 5 times bigger but that's another project.

    Sorry about the waterer.
    Andre', my black giant rooster is getting quite big.

    They look snug as bugs in a rug! What a cute little coop! [​IMG] Dont worry about the poop on the me, its nothing we havent all seen!

    Only thing I would say is you might wanna find a way to raise the nestboxes off the floor, unless you cant, because they will use them for sleep and poopin and not just laying. [​IMG]

    Quote:It's the stark reality of having a waterer like that one. They can sit on top of it. For mine, they always throw their pine shaving in the water as well. I had to get a cage for my button quails so I can get them outta the chic brooder. Now I can work out how to get that thing up so they can't mess it up. I'm gonna hang a waterer from the rafters when I get my coop built. Then they can try dirtying it all they want, lol.

    DavesWorld, they have really grown!
    And the coop is terrific, I'm impressed by the roosts. I just found out today I have been using roosts that are on the small side in diameter (only about 2" round)
    BTW, Andre is huge! appropriately named too!! [​IMG]
    I found hanging the waterer (not the kind you have) and the feeder each with a squirrel baffle over the top (like the ones for bird feeders) has gone a long way to keeping the water and the food clean!
