    Just wanted to share some pictures (and an overview of my coop, aka a room in the garage)

    The one in the middle is my favorite:

    They were piling on top of each other and trying to hold on to the roost.

    They're really fattening up! I hope that means they're feathering out nicely for winter!

    Thanks! I made the ladder, but DB actually nailed the roost up. He made it to hold over 200 pounds. Hopefully the chickens don't get THAT big! [​IMG]

    And of course I did the red and white paint job!

    did you get your new chicks yet???

    i'm still trying to figure out how to use your math (lost 1 = replace with 10) to work out for me.... i haven't lost one, but surely lost 0 = need 5 more???? hmmmmm...... then i need to get it to apply to henhouse square footage, too - 9 chickens can fit into space designed for 4?..... you're lucky! you have a great coop with lots o' space!!!

    That looks nice and its such a good size area too. I could see lots of little chickens growing up in there over many years. [​IMG]

    hee hee... I think that's what scares DB... he sees the 'I could add more chickens' look!

    My chicks shipped out today! [​IMG] So hopefully they'll be here by Friday!

    I'll crunch some numbers, Turtlechick, I'm sure there's some kind of math that can help you out! [​IMG]
