The Chicken's New Home

The chickens are quickly approaching maturity so we have moved them to a new home. We have used this old hen house off and on for years and it feels good to have it in use once again.
The inside is very spacious.
There is plenty of room for egg boxes, a feeder and water supply. My favorite part of housing chickens in there is the ladder we have set on an angle; I love seeing the chickens roost on it.
Any day now we are expecting to find freshly laid eggs.

How many grown chickens do you have left from your original incubation?

PS) WHO'S closing the chicken house at night!?? ;-)

They sure have grown up fast. I'm still considering getting some chickens but can't make up my mind because I don't want to deal with them pooping on the deck.

Wow, what a healthy bunch of chickens. Nice home for them also. Did you really hatch these yourself? Good luck on the egg gathering.
