The chicks get a home

new chicken coop will be home to our Lavender Orpingtons

Today Jeff Jicinsky brought a beautiful new coop that will become the home of our little store flock of Lavender Orpingtons. They're six weeks old now and have their beautiful slate gray feathers, even though they're still babies at heart and are kind of awkward in that baby way. We wanted a special coop for them because they will spend the winter outside in the Coop Garden so they need something that's warm and convenient, is easy to take care of and has a nice big run. As you can see, the new coop fits those specs really well. Hardware cloth around the bottom for predator protection, a full roof, even a solar-powered light on the outside. We are really looking forward to introducing the birds to their new abode. We will let you know how it goes.
