While waiting for hubby to finish the tractor, the new girls hung out in the greenhouse.

Here is the tractor. One end is the enclosed coop, the other end is open, and the centre part is open only on one side. There is an opening under the peak with wire mesh keeping critters out.

With the doors open.

These are the nest boxes, they slide out so that I can sweep out the inside area. He put linoleum down to make clean up easier. And inside there is one roost that goes from side to side.

And here are the new girls enjoying the space! We are hoping they are all girls...the sellers couldn't verify. Time will tell.

We picked up some windows on the weekend for the larger coop, and hubby has begun drafting the plans for it. He says I will be able to have 8 girls, which means I get to get two more! Whoot! Whoot!

Looks solid! But I do have a question for you about the chicken wire on the bottom. Don't you worry that the wire is going to be hard on their feet? I'd be concerned about abrasions leading to bumblefoot infection.
