This was our 3rd coop we built and hopefully the final one! We\'re in the snow belt so our chickens neeeded a place to go and \"play\" in the winter, take dust baths, be protected from critters and generally get fresh air. This seems to have fit the bill! All chickens stay healthy, and live out their lives here. We had a 14 year old rooster that passed a few years ago, and many chickens we\'ve taken and didn\'t know their ages. This has been a learning experience over the past 40+ years, and we\'re finding there is always something knew to learn to make things easier on ourselves an our poultry! I think this year we may hatch some of our own, which we haven\'t done in a few years.
