In 2022, our son in law Justin was working from home.
Now, close your eyes.
Picture yourself working from home with 3 small children, 2 dogs and 3 grown women all home at the same time.
He bought a shed. We were going to turn it into a sweet and professional office for him to work in.
A few months later…he got a better job and went back to work in an office.
That left us with a really nice, brand new shed in our backyard.
One day we had a conversation.
Justin: “Haven’t you always wanted chickens?”
Me: “why yes I have.”
Justin: “couldn’t you turn the shed into a chicken coop?”
Me: “I would think so. Let me ask Steve.”
The Bird Cage was created.
1/4 of the shed was taken for the coop.
With its own screen door and a chalkboard for notes. I forget things!!
The coop has nesting boxes and roosting poles. Things chickens need
It also has things chickens don’t need.
However, if you know me at all, the next things will not surprise you.
MURALS!! Thank you to Grace Owens for her fabulous artistry.
The gate to enter the run is around the back of the shed.
They have a ramp that they can easily go in and out
They have a watering system
We found this ladder in Steve’s dads garage as we were cleaning it out. The chickens absolutely love to climb and roost on the rungs.
They are getting big. We have bets on who is a rooster
Having chickens is fun. The boys love them and one day soon they will be supplying us with eggs. Chickens will need to earn their keep.
Come on girls, let’s go!!!
