My Chick Inn

I know a couple of you have chickens, so I wanted to share my new chicken coop. I am very proud of it. I gave my husband some ideas, and this is what he came up with - nothing like the ideas I gave him, he went beyond my expectations. Another great thing, is about 70 percent of the house is made from refurbished material.

I LOVE my chickens

I have eight ( 2 Easter eggers, 2 Rhode Island Reds, 2 Black Sex Link and 2 Polish crested ). They are only 3 months old, so at this point I think I might have two roosters, even though I was told they were pullets. I still want to get some Silkies.

I also have 6 ducks in another pen ( 2 Pekin, 2 Cayuga and 2 Swedish Blues ). The Pekins and Cayugas are 2 years old, and the Swedish Blues are 3 months.

I never thought I would enjoy having chickens and ducks as much as I do. The ducks are so comical, and I cannot believe how friendly and affectionate the chickens are. We raised them all in my garage with Brady and MacKenzie helping out. My dogs love them.

I saw your posts on the chicken forum about a month ago.

I had chickens when I was a kid and hated them but it was my fathers great idea and the coop was old and not really set up right and was far from the house with no running water etc.... I am going to visit a friend in spring so I can get a couple polish for yard decorations... the chickens are just so friendly and affectionate... all they want is to be with me so much that I can hardly walk in the chicken run... they crowd me... we are getting about 8 eggs a day right now and a friend of mine put a light in the coop for me so its set up right and its so easy to maintain.... I like the backyard chicken forum ... I was going to another but some of those folks were craaaaaazzzyyyyy but the backyard chicken folks seem relatively sane... but yeah I adore my chickens

That is very impressive! I wish I could have chickens. There is nothing like farm fresh eggs.

That is gorgeous, your chickens are living in the life of luxury. I bet they are some very happy chickens.

Your husband is extremely talented. I think it's great he used recycled materials. I've had my DH make a few things for me also using almost all recycle materials.
