The chicks are out of the bathtub!
My son Josh built me a chicken coop for the newest members of the family.
We are all about using recycled wood and whatever we have laying around so this is what he came up with.
When I built my deck last year from pallets (see this post) I saved all the leftovers. The only money I spent was on a box of screws.
He made a door that swings up on the side so we can access their house.
He is going to put wheels on it so we can push it around in the yard and they can eat bugs and stuff and fertilize the grass.
They love their little house but are not too sure about the coop part.
They like their roost.
And of course they like to poop! EUWWWE!!!
Brooklyn is giving them lessons on climbing their little ladder back up to their house. And she has named them…
SALLY, BAILEY, FUZZ WUZZ, SMOOTHBERRY and BROWNIE.
