Chickens 4 the Hinsons ~ Week 6

Chickens 4 the Hinsons Week 6

The girls have moved into the coop!

Catching up on our chick adventures? You can see week 1 here and week 2 here, week 3 here and week 4/5 here

The day the coop got finished enough for the girls to move out was a HAPPY day for all! It isn’t entirely done, we still have to build their nesting boxes and have a few more additions. But it is safe, warm and there’s plenty of room for them all!

I must admit, I was a bit nervous the first few nights not having them in the safety of my garage. But it’s been over a week and all is well! We have done all we can afford to protect them!     

When we designed the run, we wanted it to be people-friendly so we could easily go in with them. We are not planning to free range at this point due to dangers in our area and also our own dog {the Dachshund} is the biggest threat to them. So we wanted a nice run area where we could hang out with them!

My favorite part is begin able to see my girls enjoying their run. When we let them out in the morning, it’s a mad rush to the ground! They flap all around and go nuts, it’s hilarious!

Coop Progress…   

The coop and run is currently still in progress but the safety features are complete. You can see the netting covering the entire run, which is to protect them from flying predators during the day. They are locked into the coop at night, which is hardwired and fully secure.

We still have some work to do on the door and around the bottom edges of the fencing to protect them even more.
