The chickens and guineas will be 5 months old in a couple weeks. No eggs yet, but they enjoy the coop immensely. Here they are settling down for the night on the roosts I made.



It's been nice, so I'm finishing up the garden and hoping to finish painting the coop this week. We'll see. Crossing my fingers they start laying soon!

That's not chicken coop, that could be a rental house.

Yeah, REM. I have enormous chickens, so I wanted some strong roosts. These seem to work really well. I took the edge off with a router so they weren't sharp on top.

By huge, I mean that at least two of my roosters have passed the 15 pound mark... and they're not done growing. This year we'll be having Thanksgiving chicken.

Haha, I have a roo that's getting that big. The rest are young pullets. It feels good to be back in the saddle again. My new shepherd pups and another predator put me out of business a couple of years ago.
