Coop Site

Here is what we have done thus far on the coop area........

 I painted the trim to match the house, not sure if I should do the top of the nesting box with the brown or not, what do you think??  We still have to move it ahead a little and then level it in position.  Next step will be to make the cage area for the outside, we are hoping this area will be large enough if not we will expand at a later date!  I have some "landscaping" plans the finish up around the area, but that is the fun stuff and has to wait until and the other stuff is done, LOL.

I will take photos of the inside another day, we have a few little things to finish up inside, like the screen that will cover the window (the one that came with the window is not secure enough) and we think we need to make some kind of window on the large door so they will have more ventilation in the summer.  The next few days are going to be triple H days outside so we may not get much done, not sure yet.   Some of the minor stuff may get done after they have begun occupying their new residence!

Stay cool.


  1. Very Cute! Your ladies are going to love their new digs! Cross ventilation is a good idea, especially in summer. Looking forward to more photos. Blessings, Julie.

  2. You're going to have some very happy hens! That looks like a great place for them to live! Love the huge pile of firewood in the background too! :0)

  3. Looking good Denise... the girls and Rudy are going to be impressed. Can't wait to see more.

    Have a great day... hope you are staying cool.

    Hugs, Deb


I really enjoy hearing your comments, sorry I had to turn on the "word verification" but I got my first comment from a "non-person".......I prefer comments from people.
