Chickens and Coop

We finally were able to find some recycled windows at the auction Tuesday and put them in the chicken coop.  We were leaving the big doors open for light, but the grackles, starlings and sparrows were wreaking  havoc on our feed and the chickens weren't getting enough natural light.
Doug spent a couple of hours yesterday installing the windows.

Today he will trim them out and revamp the nest box arrangement,  We have 15 hens and one rooster.  It's a small space so we are continually trying to perfect it.

I was trying to get some pictures of hen butts yesterday, since it was so nice out and they were enjoying their freedom.  Problem was they are continually moving about.

We can't seem to build up our burn pile.  The chickens find it so interesting they end up spreading it all over.


Oops, a rooster butt

I just think they are so nice, interesting and entertaining.
