A Creative Chicken Coop is Half the Fun of Having Chickens

I can sure appreciate the dedication and effort involved to create this coop from scratch.  It’s lovely, creative, and more than suitable to accommodate chickens. Keeping chickens for many is a hobby, it should be just as fun watching them as it is caring for them. This is where the coop plays such an important role in chicken keeping. It needs to be a place you want to be too!

Putting your individual signature on a coop will turn the ordinary into a unique image of your personality.  New isn’t always better, a coop just needs to be functional, style comes from the touch of caring hands and love.

Here’s an example of how much fun it can be to design a chicken coop. I found it on Backyard Chickens.

Very Low Cost But Tons of Work: Recycled Coop | by Nardo

Not sure about the “low cost” of this DIY coop, but use your imagination…  we can all find scrap materials that would add a little dazzle to our chicken coops! I like the plants inside, nice touch!

Thanksgiving Dinner for the Gavin Flock

I prepared a special treat for my chickens on Thanksgiving Day. Hard boiled eggs, bacon, and sliced apples.  They usually get all the scraps from the dinner table, but on Thanksgiving there was a much better variety of goodies.  The bacon was the big attraction, then the hard boiled eggs, and the apples were avoided until there was nothing better. Yep, just like kids!
