A few weeks ago, measuring up to see how big it should be......
the basic construction so far.......
The finished thing, complete with bunting made from an old cupcake design table cloth, iris blue outdoor paint and various chicken and flower designs on the coop part by myself and the wee ones.
The lovely ladies are pleased at being in there own space but I think they miss the contact of us, they make me smile and remind me a dogs in the way they behave. Each morning when I open the coop door they come running out pushing each other out of the way so I can stroke them, they make a right noise when you walk away from them.
Here they are in the tiny makeshift cage, they don't even have tail feathers yet!
Chris being really brave wearing gloves to hold them, they love him and nod off using his arms like perches.
Getting bigger and more mischievous, pecking at anything, especially my tiny seedlings I had growing in the front room!
Still got a long way to grow, now 9 wks old. Can't wait for our first eggs and too spend many more days just watching them running around and making us smile.
