The new coop is done!!

New coopIt took about nine months…long enough to birth a child, but I got instead a wonderful new chicken coop.  Small barn, really.

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.
