Chicken Day! Tour of the chicken coop and first day owning chickens


Dawn Owens: I can't believe you got eggs already! They must be thrilled with their new home!

kmb383: fireballmalone1 4? My red star lays an egg almost every day!

fireballmalone1: kmb383 that's awesome!! I have been on a roll lately getting 5 for 5 everyday for about a week and a half. They lay later and later then earlier and earlier. It's an interesting cycle they have. Thank you for the great comments. Good luck and ATB

HoaryRider: That is the nicest chicken coop/ run I've ever seen. You could probably rent it out as a guest house. Okay maybe not, but it is a fine piece of work. Cheers

fireballmalone1: HoaryRider I am planning a small cabin way out in the woods for my retreat, and a place for friends to stay. It won't cost as much as the coop lol

azalea5560: Stick their beak in the water … they'll get it. Have a trail cam? Would be interesting to see who's sneaking around at night. Happy girls… giving gifts already. 

fireballmalone1: A trail cam is a great idea.  I tried to catch one but they would let me get anywhere near them.  I figured I'd wait a couple days until they settled down and try again to teach them the waterer.   Thanks for the advice!  ATB

fireballmalone1: azalea5560 they have finally figured out the waterer! I caught one……eventually and took your advice, half hour later, presto. Big thanks

rub one out rosie: im sure they will have a great life.

fireballmalone1: So far they seem to enjoy it.  I went 5 for 5 with eggs on the first day!  atb
