The chickens are six weeks old now and the temps are moving up. Yay! We love warm weather! More time outside is definitely helps a mama out!
We were blessed with a (free) loaner chicken coop thanks to family and Facebook! It really makes the whole experience less stressful when money is not in the equation especially since we are first-timers! So far I’m sold on the idea of a little backyard flock! Go get some chickens, people!
It’s a well built chicken coop! Perfect for four or more chickens. And we can move it around the yard pretty easily if we need to. We will probably use the larger run to put the chickens in when they need to stay put while I’m in and out with the kids, otherwise I will let them out to roam the yard when we are outside playing this summer.
We had fun going to get the coop. Playing in the back of a pick-up truck is always exciting for some reason!
I think these chickens will fit right in our crazy backyard!
Chicken Becky isn’t the most beautiful chicken in the bunch, but we still love her.
Now if they can just learn how to go up the ramp into the roost by themselves.
We love our chicken friends!
My goals for the summer are to keep the coop clean! I might try to make some homemade spray for disinfecting. We still have to predator-proof the larger run. I also want to plant lots of plants near the coop like herbs and flowers to pretty it up around there!
