    This is so cute! very creative!

  3. Jeanne says:

    Such an amazing transformation of the little shed you started with! I’m sure the chickens are in hog heaven living in Chez Hen 🙂

    Beautiful work as always!

      Thank you, Jeanne. It all came together, and I am so glad that we have such good chickens to enjoy this coop that we worked so hard on.

    Where did you find the “dusk to dawn” lights?

  5. Stacey Harris says:

    Not sure whether you will find this pertinent or not, I thought this was a cool touch.

  6. Evie Krause says:

    Who would have thought the little old shed would have ended up looking like this. Well done ladies, it truly is beautiful,those chooks (aussie for hens) are very lucky.

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Thank you, Evie! I can’t even believe it all started with a little old shed either!

  7. Mary Newland says:

    Cutest chicken coop ever! Love the details…all very clever and add so much interest. Well done!

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Thank you, Mary! It has taken a lot of work, but we are so happy with how it all came together.

    Absolutely perfect! I love the huge concrete rooster!

  9. Sheree Kimes says:

    What do y’all use in the chicken run to keep it dry and how often do you change it?

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      With the roof over it, it stays pretty dry. Unless we get a massive amount of rain and then it runs in from the door. We will be taking care of that. I usually buy a few bags of the wood chip shavings at Rural King or Tractor Supply and throw it down to keep their feet dry. And, I don’t change it. It composts and becomes dirt. I will add more over it when I want it to look fresh. As far as the inside, I use the same bedding and I clean it out by scooping their poo and adding fresh over the top. They are outside so much in the summer that there isn’t much of it.
