Why temporary you ask? Because I'm extremely fortunate to have a good friend who is about to buy a house. A house that has a nice chicken coop. A nice chicken coop that they do not want! Which means that I get to ask more good friends to help me move the thing to our property. But the timing may be strange so I wanted to go ahead and get this one set up just in case I got chickens before I got the new coop.
The area looks like a bomb went off right now. We've been bringing in dirt and leveling the area. The goal is to make it able to be mowed. In the meantime, I've scattered all the old veggie seed that I had on hand and it's going to be a chicken garden. Meaning, anything growing there will be for the chickens. So far I've got peas, squash, and watermelon coming up. Not bad for 5 year old seed.
|Slowly getting more level|
|Extremely rickety crib|
|The dog always helps. She's the small brown spot in the dirt (of course)|
|I may have had too much fun doing this|
|Lots of roost space|
|Built but not yet painted|
|Note the coop cover is now painted too|
Of course it all looks a bit bleak right now. Until the greens come in and the flowers bloom. Then it'll be awesome. Right up until the chickens destroy it all. At least I'm realistic...
