The best thing about our chicken set-up is that we re-landscaped the back yard to be more chicken-tolerant/chicken-friendly. The girls destroyed the yard the first year - so it was clear we needed more shrubbery and places for them to dig; while still keeping flowers, edibles and a generally attractive yard. We think we've finally got it figured out. Come on over. We'll all be in the back yard.

Our handmade coop was a true labor of love, a testament to friendship, and the realization of a six-year dream. The coop is roughly 6′ x 5′ (counting the nesting boxes) with additional 8′ x 8′ attached run. A project like this has left me with not just more of an appreciation for members of my family and close friends, it's also an appreciation for skilled laborers who work tirelessly to grow our food every day. We share your interest and curiosity for backyard chicken rearing; so upon your visit please be courteous and look for signage regarding hand and foot washing stations. This is for safety of people and birds alike.
