C2 Chicken Adventures:The Blue Trim Coop

Our chicken coop is finally finished!  It took us about a week and a half of working off and on in our free time on it but its finally done and we love it!  Originally I was going to give you a basic break down of how we built our coop but sadly that’s not going to be happening.  Basically we drew a picture of what we wanted it to look like and some basic measurements and just ran with it.  So instead, I’m just going to share some pictures from start to finish of our coop and some updated photos of our chickens!  Enjoy! Read More »

Chicks Update 7

Our chickens just keep getting bigger and bigger.
