Before the chickens moved in, some friends came to see it and thought it would make a great guest house. Fat chance! I have needed the extra space for some time.
My husband and son did a great job! They used a lot of material that we had stored in our garage. The windows were a find…special-order windows from Lowes that were returned. About 90 percent off the original price!
I’ll put it to the test this winter…I hatched out about 75 chicks in August…insane, I know. So we’ll see if the house can handle my 30 adult birds plus a large number of adolescent Buttercups. But, in the hot days of early August, I won’t worry about that.
