a coop warming

I have been very busy with my summer camp this week, but I wanted to update you on our coop and chicks. Well, we finished the coup on Sunday and  our permit was approved on Monday. On Thursday, the chicks spent their first night in the coop. They all seem happy, and I am very happy to have my bathroom back. It is so nice to walk out at sunrise to the coop and see the chicks making their way down the ramp to greet me. It really feels like my little peace of farm paradise.





Can't wait to find eggs in little egg door. 

 Pilot just loved playing in the coop and sliding down from it. 

 As John put the last finishing touches on the coop, we all gathered inside to show the chicks their new home.  How many people and chickens can fit in a coop? It was the best coop warming party I have ever attended. 

Scout had fun in the dirt with the chicks. That will be the only time he gets to get down and dirty with the chicks in the coop since there was no poop in it yet.

 I think they like it!

It looks wonderful!! Reece was doing the same thing on the ramp, and he actually still uses it to get himself into the coop :)

I think your chicks will be very happy in there.

wow, I love how John did the ramp with Natural wood for steps! You may want to invest in some Lyme to sprinkle on the floor of the coop it will eliminate odors when they get bigger. Next time you come down we will fill you up with some wood chips too, Chickens love to scratch.

How fun for you and your family -- it will be a source of joy (and hopefully no sorrow) for many days and years to come.

Oh this post makes me so happy. Seeing the happy faces of your children would melt ice if there was any to be had in this heat.
That is some beautiful chicken mansion:) B

Love your pictures of your coop, chicks, and youngsters exploring. They seemed to be having a good time.

That's a great-looking coop! What chicken wouldn't be happy and content there. The kids are so cute and seem really excited about the project.
