Backyard chickens are the best but if you live in a nice neighborhood you have to have a cute coop!! We found this dog house at Lowes, added the green door, cut a side door that goes into the pen area and put it up on some posts for more room under the coop. Easy to keep clean and a great addition to our yard. Plenty of room for 3 hens. Love the eggs that Frick, Frack and Henny lay for us everyday!
If you have garden and those darn beetles, slugs and caterpillars (etc.) get into the mix way too often, just put in one of these and then you can feed them to your chickens : ) The guilt of killing those darn things won't weigh too heavily on you if your chickens love you for it, ha ha!
