We angled my old dilapidated swing to have full view of the coop, yet still remain in the shade of the big avocado trees.
Greg had the coop personalized for me too. He chose this name because, although I usually go by Kris, my given name is actually Kristin. I have been called Kristy all of my life by my family and friends since childhood. And my middle name is Diane, after my Mom. Hence the initial D. Which creates a play on words for both of the names I go by, Kris and Kristy, or Kris (D) . Pretty clever I thought. And I loved that he thought of that for me!!!
Dry feed hopper is filled here, and then funnels slowly into a space for them to feed.
Even though, there will be no eggs to collect until late August or September, I am sure that each feature of this new coop will make chicken keeping so much more enjoyable! Greg really hit a homerun with this birthday present!!! I absolutely love it, and am tickled pink to be back in the chicken raising business! I hope you enjoyed the new coop tour!!!
Til next time....
