    We are trying to introduce our 12 week old and 7 week old chicks. They are in the run with their coops and half the run separated do they can see each other. We had a little make shift shelter for the little ones until I got gonna from work today. I have told my hubby multiple times, "hunny, face it, you ain't no handy man!" I guess I stand corrected!

    I am so proud of him!!! He did a fantastic job for someone with no carpentry skills!! I never said a word about the small one they had. He took it upon himself to build something bigger. Then he just said," the girls need something bigger!" ;-) I think he secretly likes them!! :)

    My 5 girls moved in a couple months ago. The big part is my potting shed. I access the nest boxes from inside the shed and have a window that opens into the run. Its easy to toss in some treats without stepping in poo. Lily likes to watch the backyard action from the landing.

    Of course it's built by the world's best husband! He knows his wife is cooking him breakfast out of those eggs!

    I adore the playhouse coops. We've looked at Amish Quaker and Dutch and ezclean coops but my heart tugs at the Playhouse look. I think I found someone who'll build on site for us. Gotta get some reference backup first. Love the landing and wide spacious ramps you have for your girls.

    This coop is 6'x14' with six nest boxes, 20' of roost poles, and is designed to be moved once a week. By moving it weekly, your chickens have fresh clean ground, new space to explore, fresh grass, able to supplement diet, and leave manure behind as fertilizer. Two people can push it forward 14' each week, or you can pull it forward with a riding mower or 4 wheeler. Muddy runs are a thing of the past. This coop looks nice in a urban or rural setting. The wheels are 8" and have a 300# per wheel capacity.
