While we're on the subject of chickens don't forget to check out these chicken themed T-shirts!

Dirt Road Duds

Tomorrow I'll post pictures of another chicken coop I started working on. It's small and portable and will house 2 to four birds. I was hoping to have it finished this weekend but it's going to rain tomorrow and Monday.

Happy Hens and Baby Pigeons

ell, the roof is on and the hens in. We're getting 5 eggs a day right now. They're from the White Leghorns. The Rhode Island Reds haven't started laying yet. Probably in another two or three weeks.

The roof on the next boxes isn't nailed down yet. I'm so happy with this chicken coop! There are still some finishing touches I want to add. In fact I have some grand ideas which will remain secret for now. I'm still figuring out how to implement them.

More good news! We finally have baby pigeons. After three years of trying here they are.

Another pair are sitting on eggs. They should hatch around the 27th of March. Keep your fingers crossed!

More chicken coop progress

Ken got the roof on the coop today!! I didn't get a picture of it finished because it was getting too dark, but here he is waiting for me to stop fiddling around with the camera and help with holding the sheets of Ondura straight while he nailed them on.

Chicken Coop Progress

Here we are with the nest boxes half built. I put a window in the east facing side. I'm not an early riser so at least the chickens can enjoy a bit of the morning sun until I let them outside.
