    Sorry guys more pics.. Got some of the bunch, that I seldom see, today. Cheesy bread sticks pizza hut ! Works ever time. And the coops and nest boxes I used what I had on hand, it's all wired together, strong tie wire cut bend it double and ttwist to tighten, it can all be taken apart and moved in 3 hours. Fly pens also, (one 35'x15' the other is 24x12) needs 2 more rolls on top, for chicks and pullets, until older.. And milk crates make awesome nest boxes, easy to hang any where at any height, I live by the motto, KISS !! keep it simple stupid ! I've had chickens my whole life, in fancy exspensive barns, hen houses, and recently 2 years got back to a nice sized flock. No money, be creative !! We all have imagination.. Use it.. I even converted an old ripped trampoline and a rabbit hutch for my layers for a couple years before that. I'm recently disabled 3 almost 4 years now. Just thought I'd share.. Used a chicken tunnel to get from enclosed trampoline to the rabbit hutch, you can train chickens to do just about anything. It is on wheels and easy to move before I broke my back and legs.. Y not think out the box?!

    So many!!! Love those chickens!! I remember when I had the big, big flock and they were everywhere. It was fun to just sit in the yard and they would wander up and get treats and just go about their day.

    Thanks for the photos. :)
