* coop

Posted on August 10th, 2010 by maitreya. Filed under Chickens, Home and Garden.

Ever since we moved, I’ve been thinking about getting chickens.  Not entirely sure why, but they seem like they would be fun.  I’ve been half-heartedly searching Craigslist for the last 6 months or so looking at chicken coops.  They all seemed either ridiculously expensive or really shoddy.  Plan B was building one.  Procrastination pays off sometimes, though: a coworker was giving this away to make room for a bigger coop!  What luck!


I just need to reinforce a few of the joins, reattach the ramp, and line the bottom with hardware cloth, and it’ll be good to go.  We also need to put in a gate so the chickens can range around in the back yard.  I signed up for the city chickens class from Seattle Tilth, but we’ll see if I can actually wait until September….
