Our chickens now have their very own home! A cute little orange coop complete with a wired window, 2 roosting sticks, a slide-out floor for easy cleaning, 4 nesting boxes, and a partially covered run. Happy homecoming, Chickens!

Look how much our little chickens have changed since hatching! It's amazing! Sometimes we think we SEE them growing!

With a little more planning and work, A, J, J's friend T, C, and S constructed a LONG run for the chicks (about 16x4). The older boys enjoyed using the staple gun and wire cutters! And now the chickens have PLENTY of space to dig, eat plants and bugs, and exercise.
