Turning a play house into a chicken coop

We are so excited about getting some chickens. Haven't had them since I was a kid. Looking forward to getting them and having fresh eggs and seeing them on the place again. Here are a few starter pictures for today, will post more as we progress. First is after he got it from F's back yard.
 coming down the street
 Deciding which way to drive it to the back yard
 Trying to clear the fence.
 Just squeaked by.

 Avoiding the rose bushes
 This is where it will set
Coming around the back
 Lining it up

And down..
Will post more as we get more done. Need to put wire over the door and windows.
Build perches and nesting boxes, with access to the boxes from the outside.Will take better pictures soon.
Have a great week, back when I can.

  1. Oh wow April that is going to be one very posh hen coop - a luxury 5 star hotel :) Well done on successfully moving it and getting it re-sited in your back garden. We used to keep chickens, geese and ducks as well as goats and pigs! Great fun. You just can't beat fresh eggs :)
    Thank you s much for your lovely comments on my blog.
