The coop

Sold both of the Buff Orpingtons roosters this week. The hens are greatful!

Been letting the Showgirls out in the coop (the green fencing on the left and the grey box and the white/blue box are their pen area), they have been loving it. Except for today that is. Let them out and they started playing and eating their yogurt and I went inside. Came back out a few minutes later with some grapes and they were cuddled together trying to get warm so back into the house they went.

They babies are outgrowing the brooder in our bathroom. Our inlaws mutt baby, whom we call "Crazy" keeps jumping out. Going to have to fix a proper top to the brooder tommorow.

Bought them about 500 crickets and 1,000 mealworms this week. The chickens went nuts for them. Dropped a bunch of mealworms in the brooder figured it would give them something to scratch around for.

But, back to why I originally posted--the coop. Snapped that pic Thursday when I got off work. I need to paint the front of the house. Thinking of painting windows on it. Not sure yet. Needs something!

Paint like a barn...that red & white style...make it look like a barn with the doors open or something
