We’ve been busy for the last few months. Dan and his team at Green Chicken Coop are helping us treat Tilly and the girls to a new home. It’s the least I could do for them. Afterall, they are responsible for my book. I am so excited to share with you my overall design that Dan is bringing to life.
Dan and his team build each beautiful chicken coop by hand in an eco-friendly manner. Every coop is made in the Bay City, Michigan. This is not the first coop that I have ordered from Dan. It is actually our second one. When we started keeping chickens we purchased the smaller Victoria. We still love it!
This coop will be large enough to house Tilly and the girls as well as the new girls set to arrive later this spring. As our flock grows, with our flock rotation plans, so must the coop and run. The coop will have plenty of windows and the cupola will be functional as well. The mini-coop door for the girls will be able to be closed without us having to step inside the coop or run. The run will also have roofing to keep the girls semi-shaded and protected from the elements.
The kids and I can’t believe that our coop is arriving this week! We’ve been busy temporarily relocated the girls to prep the area for the new coop and run and digging up all the wonderful plants that surrounded the old coop. I think we are just about ready after one more day’s worth of work, bringing in fill and leveling the ground a bit. I’ll be sharing lots of pictures during the entire process, so stay tuned!
