Welcome to a tour of our humble coop.
While it still needs some roost reworking, it's home sweet home for the chickie's.
I finally got around to raking up some hay from the pasture and cleaning out the nesting boxes. I am trying the deep litter method this year. Instead of cleaning out the floor of the coop, you just add a clean layer of hay atop the old. Hopefully I will have some nice compost come spring.
We are also preparing for the girls to start laying. They are just over 20 weeks, so they should start any day. To encourage them to lay in the nesting boxes we have so kindly provided, I use a golf ball.
What a sweet little helper!
