A few more photos here (including a peek inside the coop) here…
Above: Interior coop. We have three separate housing units to keep the chicks together, and the two hens separate at night. At dusk, when the chickens go inside, the little chicks have the run of the coop and the two big girls are separate from them. This way we can darken their individual pens and the light doesn’t bother them. It’s still a little chilly at night here , so we haven’t turned off the heat light on the 8 weeks olds yet. So far, so good.
The little dog travel kennel is a $3 steal from a garage sale, and the hens seem to enjoy laying their eggs inside it.
This is Roxy announcing her egg. I’m here holding it in front of her to let her know all is well 🙂
