The coop is finished!! It has turned out to be as my whole life has been, beyond my wildest dreams. I think it is the nicest coop I have ever seen. So without further ado here are the photos.
There is sits in the late afternoon sun, with the light drifting down through the trees. It is all white. I decided to just let it look nice and clean. The door is on now where the nest boxes are and it is so nice.
It has this lovely handle and even a lock on the door. Ron put chains on the door so it isn't heavy when I open it to get the eggs out.
Isn't that the nicest thing you have ever seen? I won't even have to go in the coop to collect eggs anymore.
This is where the roosts are inside. They are double what I have now. Hopefully it will keep them from pecking each other in the night.
These are the nicest nest boxes I have ever had before. He put a slanted board on top so the hens can't get up here and roost. They would you know. I really am happy with how they turned out.
Here is the window and the man door all finished. I can't wait until the move in day. The hens have no idea what is in store for them. Being creatures of habit I know that first night will be so funny. Not for them but for me. They are so cute when I clean their house they always want to come in and check it out. I know they will like this one better.
The little chicken door closed, so I can lock them in at night.
The little door open. I am sure they will be so happy when they finally get to move it. There is still the yard to build.It will be awhile yet. We are still working out how the little chicken yard will look. This huge job is done now. You know when we got married and I said " For better or worse," I am pretty sure it didn't say new chicken houses. It always makes me feel so in awe, that Ron does all of this for me. He is really a keeper.
I think always that I got the best end of the deal.
Have a lovely day, we will be taking the day off tomorrow.
