|This chicken village is to much!|
|MadeABQ has the coolest chicken tractor, and in several sizes. Kenji who owns FabLab in Albuqueque is the man who does my letter laser cutting. Imagine my surprise when I walked in his shop and saw this!|
Backyard poultry are common place today as they were in the depression. My Dad told me that many of his neighbors on the North side of Chicago kept chickens for eggs mainly, but in a pinch for stew. When I had my farm my Dad would get a lawn chair and sit and watch my chickens. He loved their interaction. I would catch him taking a couple of slices of bread and putting them in his pockets, and I knew he was headed out to watch my birds. This made me happy. As happy as when my Grandson was here, and loved watching them too.
I added a few more links of coop sights. There are literally thousands of them on Google images. The Amish even have their own coop company. I call it "farm porn". I could look at these web links for hours. $300-$10,000 per coop. At that price you won't be saving much money on eggs. I keep chickens because I love them like pets. Our dog and cats don't lay eggs.
|It will be something like this one with nesting boxes on the side.|
We will build the "coop mahal" in sections and assemble the sides, and roof out in the yard. 3 or 6 nesting boxes...that is the question at the moment. I'll take some photos of the drawings.
Thanks for reading.
