Project Check List: What’s Left on our To-Do List on the Chicken Coop

  1. Julie says:

    This will be amazing when you both finish with it….the fanciest chicken coop in all of Ohio 🤗🤩❤️🙋‍♀️

  2. Cindy says:

    Have some way to block the wind in the run from the direction it blows. Tarp, bushes, hay bales etc. Have a cover over at least part of the run for snow/rain, so the ladies stay dry. The ladies will love to stand on old broken benches or chairs. A swing is fun too for them. And, yes a mirror is hilarious to watch them look into. Looking forward to seeing what you come with!. Oh, those giant square suit feeders ( big block of bird seed)… The ladies will love as extra food in the winter. It’s also a bordem buster😂👍

      Hahaha I love this and thank you for all the tips. Also… “the ladies” so cute. I can’t wait to get them.

  3. Mary says:

    Can’t wait to see all of these ideas come to life, as all your ideas do!!! The chickens will be living the good life for sure!!!❤️

    Everything sounds amaZing on the low maintenance so kudos for having your thinking caps on. luv Luv LUV the idea with the sink!! For your run, if you’re never going to have them be free-range then be sure to give them LOTS of space TO run. Free-range chickens are great for keeping the bug population down besides weeds. And their personalities will be sure to blossom over time and observation. Another thing you might consider it ariel cloth to go over the top of your run. Also adding the electrical tape weaved in and out around the top that can be turned on once your babies are couped for the night to keep out climbing predators cuz believe me, there will be! It’s the tape they use for horses. Works like a charm! Happy Couping 🐣🐥🐔🥚🍳❣️

    What great advice everyone gave. So love the idea of the sink. When you’re outside you always need water to wash, wipe, clean, and rinse. It’s going to be fabulous. Can’t wait for the finished product…
    I also advocate for more running space, which I know is easy for me to request when I won’t have to do a lick of the work. LOL

    When I had chickens, I would collect food scraps that they loved (watermelon rind, grapes, cabbage etc. in a gallon ice cream bucket with water, freeze it and on hot days I would put it out for them to peck on! They loved it!

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Oh, that is such a great idea! We always gave our old chickens scraps, but I never thought about freezing them. Thanks for sharing!
