Busy Bees Post #2

The Coop is coming along.

Windows went in today. We acquired these from some friends of my Step Mom. FOR FREE! We will be putting hardware cloth in there to keep my girls safe.

These will also have hardware cloth.

A view from the inside.

The other side.

Still lots to finish. Nest boxes, roosts, food and water station. As well as, the yard and a chicken tractor. And then the most exciting part....The actual chickens. Yeah, that would be good to have those.

Your coop looks GREAT! LOL about the getting-the-chickens part. You are so organized, you'll have your coop complete before you even have chickens. When do you think you'll get 'em? Are you going to start with day-olds or do older birds that can go straight into your marvelous coop?

farmgirl_dk: Thanks! The organized part, yeah that's the DH, he's an engineer. Nuff said. Chicks coming on August 6th. So, excited!

I love those windows, but could never have them here. The horrible wind would blow them right off!

Your chickens are so lucky! They are going to be so happy in their new home :)

Twinville:Sorry to hear about the wind. I'm hopeful our windows will work out and not break. I sure hope they are happy! And give us lots of eggs!
