We have brought in a bantam Khaki cockerel and a bantam chocolate cuckoo cockerel to start a large fowl WC chocolate & khaki project- we will put a page up on those as we go along with the project (have babies born...) this is the Khaki at 3 months old (so the rangy looking stage)

Mom's coop is a very old building we have been renovating as we go. Next is project roof and windows (have windows).... after that will be new siding and "better" outdoor runs. 

Front room of the coop before, during, and after renovations in summer of '13.
      (Forgot to do pics of the rest of the coop that was done before this)

The fun of the coop- if mom wanted nice birds, she needed a nicer coop.
Each room took 2 days to complete.
Lt Top- Before gutting (you can see the other rooms have been done if you look through the door).
Lt Middle- room gutted, long wall gravel drench dug.
Lt Bottom- Frame put in trench, gravel packed in and around frame, board screwed on, cement blocks glued on, top board glued on.
BELOW- Same steps as above for the two dividing walls and walls got washed.
Rt Bottom- Long wall put up (22 1/2 feet is pretty long to carry).
Rt Middle- Dividing walls put up.
Rt Top- Doors hung, pens set up, birds put back  in pen. (Each pen in this room is about 6 x 7 feet- they are the middle sized pens)
