Where old greenhouses and car parts go to die...

Post  Fandrel64 on 5/30/2012, 8:07 pm

The cover for the greenhouse finally succumbed to the elements and I couldn't find a replacement that would fit right. So instead it was re-purposed with chicken wire. The shelves make good roosts. The windows are the side windows out of a couple of old VW buses.



It comes in handy when we need to go away and can't be here to open and close things up for a day or so. They can go in and out and still be protected.



Too bad they'd rather run loose...

Oh your chickens are just colorful and beautiful and their coop is so creative! If you keep a fly swatter or broom with you when you are not wearing closed toed shoes, your chicken will learn quickly enough not to peck at you. They will see your broom or fly swatter or whatever and learn from that. I had one that would peck at my legs and draw blood. She stopped after a bit once I showed her not to. It used to be said if there is one that picks on the others, it was dinner that night. I don't think I could do that but some people have learned to.

Nice looking chicken set up they look pretty happy!
I don't know what it is with chickens and legs/feet. They like to peck at your necked legs and toes Shocked When it snows, ours love to peck the snow off our boots while doing chores. Pretty funny. I love having chickens around Very Happy
Fandrel, it looks very pretty there. So lush and green.
