My Darling Hubby has been working very hard to get the coop ready for our micro-flock that is in brooders in what used to be the dining room. Below is 3 brooders housing the micro-flock.
Half of the exterior perimeter is up and primed. What started as an image in my mind is taking shape and I am excited, even though I can not help as much as I would like to due to the messed up foot.
There is still much to be done but it is starting to look like a coop. I have been researching and reading as much as I can get my hands on, learning what others have tried and what has failed. Pulling what I learned as a child and seeing if there is a new updated way.
Learned not to take DH to feed store with new chicks, he started picking out this one and that one. I was like, whoa..whoa..whoa.. we already have a rooster we don't need another to have eggs. Finally got him to narrow is picks to a leghorn variety, dominecker and a crested polish. I told him I have more on order but he wanted these, can't take him anywhere.
