All in all – we would have to say that the most talked about of any venture we have going on at the farm are the chickens.  ”The Coop” as we call it – is usually the first place visitors to the farm go to see.  Our coop has been home since early 2011 to our little flock (we started with nine).

With a few minutes of care each day – they have provided us with a little over 4 dozen eggs each week – and maybe even more importantly – an incredible supply of organic matter for our compost bins.

It’s amazing how each of our chickens has developed their own personality.  Click below on the links to read any of the posts on our ladies.

    We also have chickens and are in the process of making a new house. However, my idea of it and my husbands idea are two different things. You’ve heard the old adage “If you nail it or wire it up it gets done”. Well, that is my husband. I on the other hand am the measure r and builder of things the right way with floors, walls and roofs built correctly. I loved your self starting seed planter. I’m going to do that myself. I like you used my dining room table every year. So I really this idea. The fact that you have all the measurements on here will be so simple. I can go to my local lumber store and they will cut these for me exactly the length I need. Or I can come home and use the new table saw I bought my husband for Christmas still in the box. I will post my picture on facebook when I’m finished. Thank you so much.

      Phyllis –

      Good luck with the new coop – and so glad you liked the seed starter table! We finally got tired of feeling like we lived in a jungle in the dining room every spring 😉 We look forward to seeing the finished picture!! Jim and Mary
