As promised, here are the long awaited pictures of the chicken run the hubster and his sister built for “da girls.” From what I understand, da girls are lovin’ their new digs. Some slight adjustment needs to be made to the height of the nesting boxes, which are too high. Apparently the highest point in the coop should be the “roost,” a bar that da girls like to sit on. The nesting boxes are strictly for egg laying. At least, that’s what I think is the case. I am not, nor do I care to be, a chicken expert. I’ll cook ’em and eat ’em. Not interested in raising ’em.
To answer a commentor’s question: all 6 chickens are layers.
Here you can see the coop being added to the back of the run, rather than build it on the inside.
The nesting boxes. Three chickens to a nesting box. Apparently they like company when they nest.
Looking from the inside, you can see the opening to the outside for easy egg retrieval.
The “almost” finished product with a view from the rear. The door is the “people” door making easy access for cleaning out the coop.
Here are “da girls” enjoying their little ramp in to and out of the coop. Aren’t they cute? I can’t wait until there are enough eggs to try. I understand that fresh eggs are delicious.
Props to my dad-in-law for the photography!
