My new chicken coop!
For my 30th birthday I got a new chicken coop! If you didn't know it yet, at our new place we have no fenced-in yard so I thought chickens were not going to be an option this year. But I just couldn't stand living without some hens so I looked around and came up with an option. I found this coop on the local classifieds and bought it. Knowing we can't have free range hens at this place I decided to only have two hens so that this coop would be roomy enough for keeping them cooped up. We are also going to build it up on stilts and put a run underneath so that the ladies have somewhere to take dirt baths and scratch around. I'm so excited. Isn't it cute?
If you're in my area, you can get one from this same guy. His name is Aaron and he's building these as a side job. They come unfinished and are fully customizable. When I was picking mine up I saw a beautiful run he had added to another woman's coop. Since the economy is slow it's helping out his family and ours! What a great idea.
