My new chicken coop finally arrived! Look how cute it is!
It shipped from Michigan and arrived last week, but it took me a few days before I could move it to my backyard. Why? Because it is heavy and big. I had to clear a pathway (which means moving my mega composter) and then I had to bribe a few friends (with cookies) to come over to help my husband and I move it. The house weighs 200 lbs.
I put it in the boy's old play area where I used to have a grass roof house.
Why did I have a coop shipped from Michigan? There were several reasons:
1) I just did not have time to make my own right now.
2) There are NO cute coops like this in Los Angeles.
3) The closest coops I could find (that had charm) were over $1,400!
4) It was cheaper to buy and ship this one then it was to buy one here. Go figure!
The chickens love it!
NOTE: You may have noticed that I am starting to use a watermark on my blog photos. I just got tired of people stealing my pictures for their own use and not giving credit. It doesn't prevent the stealing, but at least people know where the photos came from. I will try to keep the watermarks inconspicuous.
