Last year I asked my husband if he could throw together some type of pen so I could have a couple of chickens. My husband is a contractor, we've got loads of wood lying around, so I thought it would be easy as pie. I forget my husband doesn't do anything simple.
But I did get my coop.
Yes, I know... it looks like Fort Knox. Lucky for the chickens, since we've got coyotes, foxes, racoons, possums, and other assorted uninvited wildlife living on our property, all of which would love a nice chicken dinner, or at least a few eggs for breakfast.
That fancy looking half moon window was my contribution. I went to our local Restore in search of a cheap window and scored that one for $6. Believe it or not it was the cheapest window they had.
My daughter the budding artist designed the interior.
I kinda think it looks like bloody handprints, but hey, the chickens didn't complain.
Very handy feature so I can collect eggs without dodging chicken poop.
And of course, a few chickens.
