I have a tendency to over do things. What started out as a simple chicken coop ended up being a clucking castle.
Greybeard had a huge window hanging around and he installed it for his fine feathered friends.
Notice the fine air vents made out of the back of a refrigerator.
Ringo helped put up the chicken run. If you can notice the wire he’s holding. I’m not too proud to say I found that roll at the dump. I kind of sneakily pulled the Yota up at the wire pile and loaded a perfectly useable roll of chicken wire then took off before the attendant could question my findings.
These overhangs where a little unnecessary but I like them none the less. It kind of makes this coop look like it’s going to fly away.
The ladies out in the yard. We acquired 9 older hens from a friend in a nearby town.
Vent in the upper back of the mansion.
Hard at work eating.
Ringo with our first ever egg.
Here’s where that went.
We are now getting about 3 to 5 eggs a day from our chickens. I think another 100 or so chickens should get us enough for our family.
Then again, I do have a tendency to over do things. Maybe I’ll stick to 20 hens? Well, maybe 30? I don’t know. A hundred doesn’t sound like that many birds.
