    After buying a small coop I decided to build myself a coop....
    I planted different kinds of mint, as peppermint, citronella and Rosemary around the coop in order to keep the Mosquitos and flies away.

    I kept the little coop inside in order to give more protections to my 3 baby Silkies
    The coop it's easy to clean, with good ventilation and when it's raining a lot the chicks can still playing inside the coop

    I just added aluminum roof on the chicken run so the chicks can play outside even when it's raining

    I really enjoyed building the chicken coop and I can see that my chicks are very happy. I can't wait to let them free range :)
