    They look so happy. What kind of chickens do you have? I have some mystery chicks that have same coloring!

    I love the flower box on the side!

  3. Thanks! The girls are RIRs and in this photo they're investigating the new banty baby. (In the cat carrier) The coop was an insulated dog house that we got from Craigslist. It was listed for $10, but when we picked it up, they just gave it to us for free! The run is made from our old deck, so the project was pretty much a freebee! If I ever figure out how to post more pics, I'll put up some of the nesting boxes inside, and their new location behind the garden!
