They really enjoy their nesting boxes. They are based on an old Amish nesting box design. I found and old antique box and the hubby built boxes to match. The boxes are cozy and warm, and they love to pile in them and squawk and lay and squawk some more!
There is an old antique orchard ladder that the girls perch on while they look at photos of the royal family and mutter back and forth, "God save the Queen" and that kind of talk. My mom and I made curtains for the coop complete with giant turquoise rick rack. They are so cute!!! How many chickens do you know with curtains on the window and a pink chandelier hanging from the loft?
The whole thing is just delightful, I love going to visit my girls. You can't help but chuckle when you glance back at the coop.

Thank you with all my heart to the men that have built this fabulous coop...I am scared of the saw (I've seen far too many trauma surgeries due to a saw). Mostly thank you to the hubby for all of the countless hours given and list of demands that were met with minimal eye rolling. Love you much!!! Thank you to my two farmhands who handed wood pieces and tools, played with scraps, and patiently watched a movie or two while we worked. You all are awesome and I couldn't imagine life without you!!! (Oscar music starts playing...eye rolling from the audience...hushed whispers, "will she ever shut up???" Well...it is Oscar weekend...hehe!!!) Kisses and hugs to all who helped, and laughed, and supported, and taunted!!! Love you all!!! XXO!
