The Big Move.

We finally completed #28 on my 101 in 1001 list, and #5 on my goals for this month. It feels so good to accomplish this goal and have the chicks out in the back yard now! We have been through so many fun stages already in the past seven weeks with the chickens, but I have to say this has been the most exciting part. After a lot of painting and preparing the last few weeks it was finally the day to move them out.


To protect the wood (and the chicks) we used a yellow and white stain by Olympic Elite Stain which will protect the wood from moisture and sun damage. I love the colors we decided to use and I think the yellow is such a happy color with the crisp white roof and windows. The chicken coop was purchased from Amazon and is the Pawhut brand. We were mostly satisfied overall except for the damaged parts from delivery. They could not replace them but they did refund a percentage of the overall price, so we figured that was nice enough. 

The chicks seem to really love their new home, so now we just have to wait for the eggs.

We move our chicks out the their section of the run today. They will be separate from the big girls for another five weeks or so, but they can still see each other. I can't wait to see how long it takes for all that grass to disappear in your chicks' run. It's amazing how fast they can clear it!
