We customized a 12/12 horse stall in my barn to be a chicken coop. Link here to see it.
The other problem with my free birds (HAHAHAHA, I just used free bird in a sentence) is that they crapped every where. ALL over. This is totally unacceptable to my husband. Good thing that coop was big and ready. They have been in the coop since. I don’t love it. I want them free. But we are going to make them an outdoor run this summer so they can get some outside time.
Now here I am with seven pretty ladies. They lay about 3-6 eggs for us every day.
One time we got seven and the kids thought it was amazing. I have no idea why.
We collect eggs every night when we feed the other animals. It is by far the favorite kid job on the farm.
I have enjoyed the chickens way more than I thought I would. They are fairly low maintained and they give me way more eggs that I can handle. Which I give to friends and family.
