These chickens had better appreciate their new digs. Last night we thought we were going to get them all set up but we ran out of daylight before getting the finishing touches done. Surely it will happen tonight. You know those last minute things that need to be done . . the curtains hung, the china in the cabinet, the pictures on the walls and the ice maker hooked up! 🙂
These chickens will have a two story duplex! What do you think of that second floor balcony? They can sit up there and look out the window on those days when they don’t want to be outside. Or, they can sit on their second floor balcony and visit with their neighbors who might be sitting on their second floor balcony!
While I was in the coop getting pictures, I decided to view the neighboring condo just to see what the chickens will see when they look over at their neighbors.
Oops! That’s no chicken neighbor . . it’s my husband. Is he taking a nap in the chicken condo? Kinda looks like it but he’s still in there working . . installing flooring at the moment.
It’s going to be nice for us and for the chickens to get them moved in there. They’re so much easier to care for when they’re in the larger space, with a larger food and water container. And they’ll be so fun to watch as they investigate their new space. I can hardly remember life without chickens in the shop!

Interesting coop! We have a mobile one but I feel we need a stationary one! Not practical in the winter! The girls need more room to walk around! ;o) Thanks for sharing!
What kind of flooring do you put in so it can be cleaned and I know you cook and bake a lot and are generous with friends and relatives but what the heck are you going to do with all those eggs?
Your flock is very lucky to have nice windows to look out to see what is going on. Vince is a very nice guy and if my ex-husband were a bit more like him, he would still be my husband. You two seem to have it all going on. After last year, you deserve some happiness.

That’s quite a chicken coop. Those chickens better appreciate it.
I remember going out with Grandma to collect eggs and feed the chickens. That chicken coop was dark and dirty, nothing like any of yours. And none of Grandma’s chickens were pets.
the coop is looking good. And by the looks of it, Vince is not “in the doghouse” but has instead “flew the coop”. He is just trying to get all those female hens to comment on his pretty green shirt.

pretty spiffy digs there.

Such a classy “hen house”. Almost better than my apt when I was in college! 🙂 We didn’t have a balcony or windows!! Was a basement room, but the price was right. You girls will be so happy they might even lay more than one egg a day just to thank you for your generosity! Oh BTW, I was given a couple of dozen “duck” eggs today. They are not very big, very white — almost blue white. Am anxious to try them –will do that tomorrow for breakfast with some homemade bread and good bacon. yum I can’t wait for morning. 🙂 🙂
I love this coop. It looks better than my first apartment when I got married 40 years ago.

Love the new “coop”! It’s nice to know that in the event Vince gets sent to the “dog house” he can go and shack up with the girls there, instead!
Love your pictures and your entire blog, Judy. I look forward to visiting you each day. I talk about you to friends and it’s funny, even though we’ve never met, I speak of you as “my friend who moved to Texas”…
Enjoy your day and try to keep those girls outta the trees and yourself away from the snakes. (I’m terrified of snakes.)
Aren’t these escape artist the ones that were to chicken to go outside?
