I Googled some ideas for chicken coops using the idea of already having a dog kennel and how we would be able to incorporate what we already have into something more useful and also something to keep our little flock safe. The only thing is I want them to be able to be free range in the garden area so still working on how to make that a little more secure. I guess we could just make sure that at night they are in their little house and during the day can be either in or out!
I just thought these would work very well to keep the feed in and also be able to go inside and collect the eggs, and clean the coop. A lesson from our last coop, build it so you can stand inside. Many hot humid summer days were spent cleaning the coop on hands and knees and that was dirty to say the least, also a bit hard on the back! So I think having one that you can walk inside of and take care of business would benefit both the flock and us! I will keep you update as we get closer to summer so please follow!
I was so excited to see these tiny little sprouts of Thyme coming up. You have to look close or maybe even use the zoom button but they are there!!
