      Just three chickens. For now, anyway. But since I’ve been “browser shopping” for chickens, I’m seeing many more breeds that I want! Thank goodness the coop isn’t that big!

    Fantastic! I wanted to build a coop but opted instead to buy. Hopefully it will be here soon and I can get my chickens, I’m so excited!

      I thought about getting a ready-made coop, but didn’t find one that completely fit all my needs (and within budget!). I can tell you that you’ve definitely saved yourself a lot of work though LOL… but I am excited. I’m hoping to have chickens in there by end of this month. Which breeds are you getting?

      We’re still a couple weeks away from finishing the coop… it’s like having a second job! 😉
