And on his farm he had a chicken

E I,E I,O! Well I got my chicken coop home the other night. Man was it ever heavy, it about didn't even fit in the back of the truck. We went home very very slow! Got it home and I wanted sat next to my little someday shop. Of course, I couldn't leave it naked for very long so I started looking around my stash of "accessories"
I brought in some galvanized buckets and scoops, some pots and plants! I need to get some hay to stuff in the slanted roosting compartments. And when it gets cooler I want to replace that tin roofing with some old barn galvanized tin I have in the attic of the garage! It's all rusty!


This chicken coop I got a couple yrs ago at a tag sale, the hubby put it on a stand and it sits out by the (Used to be) playhouse, (now) pool house. I've got some nesting in there. It seems to be a favorite hang out for the cat.

The hubby re roofed this in some shingles we had left over.




The old hose reel and cooler I've picked up this summer sits out at the pool steps.



More signs that chickens might actually live here! This feeder sits out by my new old glider swing under a tree.






Another feeder for the fouls! Have a great week ladies!

Love your chicken coop! What a great find! I actually have one of those galvanized picnic drink coolers in the back seat of my car right now. I was thinking that I was going to paint it, but maybe not...Thanks for showing everything!

Hey I love what you did with your finds. I think it's cool that you stash stuff. I have to find a purpose for my things right away. I thought the table was a steal and I loved the chicken coop the best.
