Well, the coop is pretty much done.
|J and his dad putting on the finishing touches.|
The chickens are adjusting nicely to their new home. We just have to get a few nesting boxes, but we still have quite a bit of time to get those.
|In the winter, our *plan* is to secure a long piece of thick plastic down in the front to help keep in some of the heat and warmth|
|The kids go out there every day to visit with the chickens.|
Now we just have to figure out which ones will be hens and which ones will be roosters. Only time will tell...
|Haven't they gotten big?!?|
The local farm and ranch store is selling pullets (female chickens) for about another week or so. We are *thinking* about getting 2 more...just in case we end up with all or mostly roosters. Had I known a local place sold JUST pullets, we would have gone this route in the first place. Plus, they have a large variety and I think it would be nice to have a colorful array of chickens.
Oh well, it's been fun though :)
