Look What I Found!

Brand new super nice chicken coop on Craigslist…  and now it’s mine. 🙂

It’s pretty bare bones, but it will be in a fully covered partially enclosed shed row barn so it should fair well.  I’ll be using it for my mamma hens and hatch-a-longs.  If that doesn’t happen, like this year, it’s perfect for chicks just out of the brooder at around 6 weeks old.

My biggest MUST HAVE with any coop is that it will keep wild birds out. Chickens are inexpensive to feed, but when wild birds have access to the feed, triple the bill. The second MUST HAVE is kick boards, I can’t stand bedding spilling out all over the place.

Looks like this coop fits my criteria perfectly!
