So I've been asking all kinds of questions and you guys have given me some awesome ideas. I thought I'd share my setup now that it's complete... Here's the chicken tractor. The nesting boxes. This gives you some idea of how small my yard is AND how close my neighbors are! My favorite girl, Henrietta... hopefully not Henry. Here is the inside of the coop showing the nesting boxes, staggered roosts, and heating system. And another inside shot. Here are my girlies eating some bread. And another two of my girlies. As much as I'd like to take credit for building the coop, I cannot. A local man made it for me and did a great job! If anyone in Raleigh needs a chicken tractor, I'd highly recommend him. Just contact me. My husband and I build the run though, which I think turned out nicely. And I painted the tin roof. Now I can almost say I have a barn... as much as any person living in the city on a quarter acre can have! Yes, I know that some of you will think my coop is too small for my four grown hens. I realize that is possible. But I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. I'm hoping that since they can be out of the run each day for a couple hours, they'll be OK. If not, my FIL will take one of them for me. OR like I said, my favorite may just not be a hen. She is bigger than the others and not scared of anything! Thanks to you all for your many suggestions and encouragement! I'll continue to need it, I'm sure.
