Inside The New Coop!

Sweet hubby worked on the inside of the coop this weekend.
So pleased with his work!

He surprised me with the glass doorknob!
My heart be still.
The girls seem to love their new digs!
This week they are 9 & 10 weeks old.
They sleep well on the perch.
I did some research on perches and read they like the flat boards,
and it's better for their feet.

Hubby will make nesting boxes on the left just above the perch.
Hello girls, come on in!
Got my egg sign nailed up.
Can't wait for fresh eggs!
I have found raising chickens is such a wonderful and rewarding experience.

I find myself outside more often and loving it. 
Just sitting and watching the chickens is a real treat! Who knew?!

Relaxing is good for the soul.
I am happy the coop is finally done.
Hubby will be working on a chicken run the next couple weeks.
They have a little small covered area outside for the time-being.
A little peace of heaven! 
Thanks Bunches For Visiting!

I am in love. I think I could actually live with the chickens there. What a wonderful HOME for them...and the crystal door knob is the perfect finishing touch. LOVE IT!!!! xo Diana

I love it Maryjane! We're in the "design" part of the coop building process right now. Still. :) We got more of our property cleared so we have lots more room to play with. Can't wait!

June said...

It looks so awesome Maryjane! You are going to have so much fun with those girls!!!!
hugs from here...

I am so inspired by your new coop! I do not Pinterest so this is news to me that you can make a coop this way!

Your chickens last year inspired me too but I have wondered what happen to them. My memory was that you had three...maybe it was two years ago! I kind of stopped blogging for a year. Anyway, I showed my hubby and now he wants to build one.

So thank you for sharing because we may have chickens soon because of you! xxo Kerrie

Morning,I love the new coop, looks so great. All your little touches make it so homey for the chicks, Blessings Francine.

I love it!! Good job. I even got some ideas how to do my roosting area, too. I have been trying to figure out a better way for some time. It's neat that your girls can be outside already...we are still getting frost.

And the insulation looks like galvanized metal and that gave me the idea that maybe I could put galvanized metal up around inside my space for easy cleanup. The white walls are hard to keep up.

Good job, Hubby!

Great Job Maryjane,
I have always wanted a few chickens too. Our town does not allow it but maybe some day. Once you have had fresh chicken eggs you will never want for store bought again. I love the glass knob on the doors. So cute.

Wow, I love it! We are getting the coop cleaned out and set up this week and getting our baby chicks at the end of the week. I can't wait. Love the chair and pillow in the coop. Don't you find the sound of their clucking so relaxing? When we have had chickens in the past I find myself going out and sitting near them just to hear their gentle sounds. Guess we're just farmgirls at heart:>)

We have chickens but my coop doesn't look near as cute as yours! The chickens are wonderful. We let ours free range all day and then they go up at night.
