    Hi everyone! Just can't stop adding more things to our coop/run setup. Decided to add a solid surface are to chicken watch. Wife's B-Day on Friday, so I thought I'd suprise her with a place to hang out. Did this yesterday. Between spreading sand , running to Home Depot for pavers and laying them...took about 5 hours. Needless to say she was delighted. Plan to add more pavers in front of porch, about 6 more feet wide by the 15 feet length. Proberbly next week. Plus do some more landscaping and mulching. Anyway.....Just thought I'd share this with the folks that have been following our progress and viewing our page.

    That's VERY nice, it's great to see people enjoying their chickens. I am planning a little viewing area with a bench, thanks for the pictures.

    Amazing! So what's next? Chicken jacuzzi? Mini-bar? With all that lounging space you may need a fridge nearby. [​IMG]

    Just yesterday my DH and I were standing looking at the chickens in the new run we just finished. As we stood there, I thought gee, this would make a nice spot for a patio and couple chairs to watch the chickens! We call it Chicken TV! No reruns! [​IMG]

    I think you just like doing additions so you can post more pictures to make us all jealous again. [​IMG] I LOVE your setup. I look forward to the next installment.
