I have named this coop "Autumn Breeze" and I LOVE it' It is almost done and I will be taking more pics of it tonight and post them later if hubby can upload them for me. I am LOST without my Apple computer! I can't wait to get our new one! So anyway...it's beautiful and the chickens will LOVE it. Now I just have to figure out who I'm putting where. For now it's going to be the D'uccles in one 1/2 with the silkies...and in the other half will be Phoenix my Golden Phoenix rooster and his girlfriend Shelby ( my polish hen ) They make such a cute couple! I'm eventually going to get him his own girls and sell the eggs. I'm also getting some Black Copper Marans! I can't wait! They lay those really super dark chocolate eggs. Here is a pic of what the eggs can look like:
I would LOVE to have those types of eggs. I am also looking at getting the "true" ameraucana's also who lay the sky blue eggs not the green eggs (those are easter egger chickens) Still cute and lay nice eggs but I want blue! LOL NOW i just have to get hubby to build me another coop! HEHE Prob won't happen for a really long long time but I can hope ;) I'm building me a brooder either tonight or this weekend sometime when I have off work. The baby orps are getting HUGE and keep tipping their water over so that cardboard is getting SO wet. I made them a larger table so now they don't spill it but their box is already wet so I have to replace it because...well, it sticks! Wet cardboard mixed with chicken poo is not pretty! PLUS it can't be good for them either.
Well, I have to go make some egg pancakes for dinner :D LOVE those things! They are VERY thin and you roll them up and put butter, sugar, and syrup over the top! YUM! I will take a picture of those too so you all can drool!
