The Chicks Are All Grown Up

Here they are, almost at their point of lay. Expecting eggs in about 2-3 weeks. Two Easter Eggers and two Golden Laced Wyandottes.

Tonight they are enjoying a special dinner of romaine, tomatoes, hard boiled eggs, and a tiny bit of cheese. 🙂

Chicken Roost Types and Ideas

There are so many different types of roosts, which one is best for your coop? Does it really matter? Nope, your birds just need something to roost on at night that’s suitable & easy to clean. It can be an old ladder, maybe something cool you design from scrap lumber. Or… you can be creative and come up with something totally unique.  Need a few ideas?  View 50+ Roost Ideas 

Why are Roosts Important?
It’s a natural instinct for chickens to look for a safe place to retire for the night. Not only are they protecting themselves from predators, but also inclement weather.  Chickens sleeping in the nest box is something I like to discourage for hygiene reasons.  Nest boxes are for laying eggs, roosts are for resting or sleeping.
