Chickens: Now in their permanent home!

This past weekend jrh finished the final touches on the coop (installing the roosting pole and hanging the food and watering containers). Before I left for some weekend shoots in Milwaukee we ceremoniously moved the chicks one by one from the garage to their brand new coop. The kids were very excited and we took some photos to document the move.

Though excited, Nora had woken up from her nap on the wrong side of the bed and I just couldn’t resist taking pouty photos.

The chicks have been doing well all week – there has been a bit of a learning curve for them on how to use the ramp up to the roost box, but they seem to be getting better each day. And now we just have to keep feeding and watering and playing with them for a couple more months until they start laying eggs!
