What Chicken?

Sunday, May 14, 2006


So it was getting kinda stinky in the bathroom (23 chickens + expensive organic feed = lots of poop), so Chris encouraged me to overcome my tendency to procrastinate and get going on the chicken house. We considered several designs before settling on a stylish, but appropriately rural, 4 foot by 8 foot lattice and chicken wire sided coop with a shed roof covered in tin. We used as many reclaimed materials as we could find (the tin was in the backyard and the 2x4s were donated by a friend). A couple of evenings and a weekend worth of work and voila. . .

The chickens were transported to their new home

and after some initial confusion

seemed to settle in just fine.
