Coop Almost Done!

We are almost done with the chicken coop! Having enough days of no rain has been a problem, so every mild day Ken and I could get was spent on building and painting. We still need to finish the window and screen on the back of the building, put on the flower boxes, trim the inside section of the door, and add the weather vain.
The box on the side is for nesting, the chickens access from the inside, giving them more living space.
My chickens? No. My niece next door and her husband also decided to raise chickens, and got theirs already. Here they are about six weeks old.
I'm so excited, and can't wait to pick mine up the first week-end in June!!

You'll have fun with them Laurie. My daughter and her husband in Billings got some around Easter. He's still finishing up the chicken house and the chickens all have names. I said "You can't eat them if they have names." Cathy was horrified "They aren't that kind of chickens, they're to help keep down the grasshoppers!" They got to go outside for the very first time recently and I guess it was fun watching them get up enough nerve to go down the ramp. So now I'm a chicken grandmother. Diane
