The Chick Inn

  • My husband built our coop with mostly found material and no plans. He was able to look at a friends and come up with our model. We have 5 1yr old girls and 4 new ones. No roosters allowed. We've had so much fun watching our girls and eating their eggs. My husband made the ladder and roost out of trunks of cyprus trees we cut down and notched the ladder so we can move it to clean out the coop. The ends of the coop give us access to clean, also. We have only been raising chicks for a year. All information is greatly appreciated so thanks for your site.

    @cirrus107 Thanks! Would love to have more animals, but living in the middle of town prevents that. lol

    This is so awesome. I am looking at something to bring mine closer to the garden/house area. I also have ducks and geese.
