Our DIY Chicken Coop made out of an old fence!
I should mention, this is what we did with photos…I will ask hubby to make instructions later.
And they have!
Look at our Kid’s Fort or our Fence.
We’ll never say no to free old lumber. We wanted to make sure our Chicken Wire was small. I had researched and researched where little things could crawl in the wire and murder all the chickens. We will not be held liable for Chicken-murders. I love how it looked framed. Progress!
I’m thinking the Chicken Ritz!
(Except for the décor, chickens, and fragrant flowers to mask any un-wanted odors.)
Our chicks have arrived!
Their names are:
(which are subject to change once they go in the Big House…aka the Coop.)
Potpie, Fajita, Dumpling, Casserole, Noodle and Paula Deen.
No we are not going to eat them! Well, their eggs. But, not them!
For my Ethels – Bantams are just smaller chickens. Their eggs are much smaller. These are the Production Reds. They are a cross between New Hampshire Reds and Rhode Island Reds. They are supposed to be heat tolerant and good egg layers.They are penguin looking to me, what do you think? I know my Lucille Ball is coming out – penguin looking chicks? This one reminds me of Paula Deen – the color of Butter.They do not like the camera’s flash. Or they were acting shy. Or maybe they were being “chicken!” hehe!
