Moving Day

The  Eagle chickens, have landed!  It has been months of work, (Mike's free time is limited) but the Chicken Coop/shed is finally finished.  I have had chickens in my living room long enough!


At last the watermelon box full of stinky chickens was gone from my living room! 
We have been putting them out for the day in the old dog kennel.

The structure itself if gorgeous.  Here it is in all it's glory.  The raised beds are going to be ripped up and removed but we are keeping the trellis on the right and moving it, roses and all to against the front of the coop where I think it will look wonderful.  The door is made out of the part of the deck we ripped up and unseen on the side is a window and a chicken door.
Mike built 6 nest boxes for them and here on the left you can see the window and chicken door.  The ceiling is wired so they can't fly out into the shed side of the structure.
Here they go, big day for little chickens.  We have 5 Plymouth Barred Rock and one Ameraucana.
Home Sweet Home.  Only one last thing to get done and that is to build their run.
You can see photos of the building process here if you like and photos of the day we got the baby chicks here.

How very cool! My neighbors have chickens but they just freely roam their yard...and never leave!
