The Pullet Palace

Sunday, April 04, 2010

I took my window over to my son's house on Friday and he constructed a wooden frame for it so that we could install it properly in the coop. I would not have been able to make the frame for it the way that he was able to create the pieces with his table saw. Then, my daughter came over yesterday and we were able to get the front window installed and most of the siding on the chicken coop. A big thank you to both of my kids for their help with this project! Photos of our progress so far are as follows:

Outside View of the Nest Boxes before installation of siding and doors

The shelf below the next boxes will be a small cabinet for keeping a few supplies (a girl can never have too much storage space.)

Our target for completion is mid April. My DH has commented that it is a "chicken house" and does not need to be better constructed than our house. He suggested we name it and the name we are thinking about is "The Pullet Palace." I do want to make sure it is predator proof as we have had bobcats in our yard and there are two great horned owls nesting in the neighbor's tree.

    Cool! I love it and disagree with your DH. The little ladies need only the best. I think they need little full length mirrors, chandeliers, and a lovely canopy nesting box.

    Sounds great reminds me of the time I brought home a lop eared rabbit many years ago and my husband built a hutch with four hinged sides so the rabbit could have air whatever way the wind blew and we could cover it entirely when the weather was bad they friends called it the rabbit hilton. Have fun. emoticon

    It's going to be the "Hilton" of coops! Your chicks will be safe, protected from all dangers!
You're a great "mother hen!"
Stay positive,
