Chicken Coop Photos!

I lied!



I swear, I managed to get a photo downloaded onto Photobucket again!

It wasn't the chicken coop, it was the house when I first moved here when it was green and pretty around here...

Still working on the computer dweeb stuff.

I did check in to say that my "Taj Mahal" of a chicken house is almost finished.

It was cheaper to build it than buy it. It's twice as strong, and three times bigger and less than half the price of a manufactured one. What am I saying? WE manufactured it!

LOL

I am trying.

When I have trouble at work and my Supe says call the Help Desk, I walk over to the IT people and Tazer them and take them back to MY desk. With that being said, which one of you is coming over today to help me?

After all, I played hooky from work to try to get this accomplished.

crap!

This was a picture from Kansas!

This was after Lily's snake bite, when she was three legging it.

They were city babies and they were stalking Lily.

Didn't mean to post this pic, but then again, I am NOT calling the help desk. I am just going with the flow.

Them look like foxes to me. Foxes don’t go with chickens.

From Wiki:

"In January 2014 it was reported that "Fleet", a relatively tame urban fox tracked as part of a wider study by the University of Brighton in partnership with the BBC's Winterwatch, had unexpectedly travelled 195 miles in 21 days from his neighbourhood in Hove, at the western edge of East Sussex, across rural countryside as far as Rye, at the eastern edge of the county. He was still continuing his journey when the GPS collar stopped transmitting, due to suspected water damage. Along with setting a record for the longest journey undertaken by a tracked fox in the United Kingdom, his travels have highlighted the fluidity of movement between rural and urban fox populations.”

Just HOW far away is your residence in OK from where the picture was taken in Kansas??? They may still be stalking you guys o.O

I'd love to see the chicken coop. I've thought about this myself. We certainly have the room and enough stuff for them to scratch in the fields. But, a coop would be essential. If you want to private message me, I will give you an email address to send your picture and I will post it here for you.

I love having chickens. I refuse to be enticed into getting any new ones this Spring.
Seems I say that every year and then can't resist.
This winter has been hard with ice in the water. With our system heaters wouldn't work because of electricity and cords stretched across the yard, so we just have to deal with it. They are worth it.

I agree! They are so comical, as well! And, they pay for themselves. After I pay off the coop, that is.

Curious - in the end, how much did it cost to build your own coop?
If that question is too close up and personal, you don't have to answer.

Just HOW far away is your residence in OK from where the picture was taken in Kansas??? They may still be stalking you guys o.O

4 hours away at 70+ miles an hour.

You do the math.

Really all they would have to do is hitch a ride on a semi, bound for Oklahoma City.

I don't mind divulging this information. But, if I get clubbed, it's all your fault.

Based on what NoBite has graciously agreed to post for me, just under $1000. We still need a people door (cheap, of course). And, then framing and chicken wire for their outdoor space. The coop itself is built like a fort. I don't expect to find dead chickens in the morning, and it's tight and don't expect critters, including snakes, inside. Size of coop is 8x12x10. Alan still has to cut the five windows out.

My wish is that it will look like a western town building with flower boxes on the outside, a boardwalk and miniature hitching posts, when it is all said and done.

Everything else on the inside; closet, nesting boxes and roosts will be built with the scraps.

Don't let me down, NoBite!

Back to the fox picture.

You can see Mama in the upper right hand corner watching her babies. Look closely, Mama looks like a rock. There were two other babies hanging out in the shrubbery. I have pics of them in other photos.

CRDobe, what kind of chickens do you have? In Costa Rica do they lay year around?

Mine usually stop laying in Dec and Jan. They are just now picking up again.

Awesome job StrykersPerson, looks almost too good...over-Engineered & build with Love.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Back in the early 1970's, we snowmobiled every day, come winter snow.
- one neighbor had 100 acres a few miles away, called the alps...good hills & half bush land
- a retired farmer gave us a free decapitated 10x12 foot chicken coop
- our dads loaded it on a hay wagon & floated it back into the edge of the bush, 1/4 mile tow on tractor
- us kids were 14, 15 & 16...over the next 6 weeks, we renovated the total structure...our summer break project
- we drove Dad's farm tractor with utility trailer...I was 15 and legally could drive it, on the roads
- no access to hydro, so we used a gas chainsaw, hand ax and hammer & nails
- even the bunk bed frames, came from pine trees, we cutdown and trimmed with the 16" chainsaw
- plus we made a sturdy fence around the camp side, to keep the cows out...more chainsaw work
- new steel sheeting on roof & walls, inside got bunk beds, free wood stove, small table...all got added
- it was our summer camp side...Brook Trout stream, was 100 yards away
- come winter one Monday, we went to high school & scheduled a Saturday night bush party
- that night, 30-40 sleds showed up...what a time...and our chicken coop renovation, was a big hit
- nicely re-purposed
