Dotte is checking out the newly finished mobile chicken coop.
Be sure to check out my main blog for the whole story here http://lanailens.com/2011/12/11/completing-the-mobile-coop/
I finally got a coat of paint on the soon to be mobile chicken coop that we are upcycling from a used camper. Still have to paint the interior, rip the carpet out, and hang some roosts as well. I think the chickens will be warm and dry come winter.
We have been watching Pearl and Opal trying to show off to the other birds for the last few days. It started out one day we looked out the kitchen window to see both of them on top of the original coop run. Then yesterday I noticed that now it is primarily Pearl getting up there, and always in the evening just as the sun starts to get low in the sky. This evening after feeding the goats, this is the sight that greeted us. She never gets down on the wrong side of the fence, but seems to really enjoy looking down at the rest of the chickens.
The chickens have a new yard to play in! We finished it just in time for them to check it out before seeking their roost for the evening. Maxine was already bedded down for the night, but the rest seemed to give their unanimous approval.
I am still in the process of painting the girl’s house, but thought I would share what I have so far. Hopefully I will be able to get back to it before too awful long.
