I decided if I was going to keep chickens I needed adequate space or not keep them. ...hey who said that?! Of course I am going to keep chickens.......So I built a 8ft wide x16 ft long and 7 foot high pen--varmint and cat proof. As you walk into the barn you see the north side.
The south end is a big door.......now a window for plenty of sunshine. Long side is the side of the sheep pen.
A picture of the Silkies.....i
A roo, 2 hens and their 18 chicks. Yes one hen had 7 and the other 11 chix! The 2nd pen is for the Ameraucana chicks. Eggs from Flash2 and his hens. 24 eggs due July 8, 32 eggs July 18-19 and the 3rd incubator (of course there's 3 bators) will be set with 24 eggs to hatch August 1st
This year is 50 years of chickens....just think of all the pens I have built and all the different varieties of chickens/banties/ducks/geese Oh and rabbits too 3 times>>>>
Have a great 4th
