Farm fresh eggs coming this summer! Our hens, Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner are now living in our foyer under a heat lamp. In about 8 weeks time they will be outside in their custom built coop (compliments of my talented better half.)
He made a nerdy but very cool 3D model of our coop design ( it comes with being married to an engineer.) The drawings look a little industrial, but we are making it out of some reclaimed gray ceder fence boards from our property. It will have a nice weathered look, a honeysuckle trellis behind it and raised garden beds on each side.
We plan on letting the chickens range free throughout the garden. My friend Leigh gave us a great book by Jessi Bloom that is a must have for anyone thinking about chickens.
