Love that chicken coop.  Love reconstructed items.  The chickens do look cozy. 

We too have had chickens for a long time to avoid store bought eggs and chicken, for various reasons.  Anyway, strangely, about a month ago all the chickens stopped laying eggs.  We were getting a couple dozen a day or so, now only a few now and then.  My dad really spoils them and takes good care of them so I don't know what the deal is.

What a cool idea.
Princess is awesome looking.
I don't know anything about chickens--
--is she like a special breed or something?
One thing upsets me though. Your first pictures is of 4 cutie duckies and then at the end of your post you proceed to say you slaughtered 4 ducks! Sad Please don't tell me its them! Can't bare the thought! haha

That is such a great chicken coop! I've been wanting to raise some myself, I keep telling myself that we will get some as soon as we get out of this apartment.

I  can't  say  I have the  chickens  they  are  cute and all that  but  UUUU  I  be skeered of them!   I do  get eh  grain fed cage free  eggs from  the  adn they are  wonderful.... or  I get eh  ones  from teh  old  man down the  road  who  isn't  afraid of  chickens.  I  kow I should  NOT be  afraid  I jsut  am... I know there  are  very  few  death related  chicken  attacks  if  any at all ever....   and  I  like  chickens  just  skeered!  kudos  to all of  you  living the  dream.......  I  was  jsut  ranting to a  friend  how all the  stuff they  stuff in  our  meats and  such are  whats  killing  the  health in this  nation.

anyway  sorry I ramble  great  recon and coop!!!

This rocks!  Your chickens look so happy and snuggly. 

As soon as hubby and I buy a house I want a few as well, not a fan of the massive chicken farm mentality.  I don't know about the slaughter though, I'm a wuss, it's totally better for you and it's nice to know that the animals we eat are respected and cared for while they are alive...  I'd just have to get over it I guess.

That's sooo cool!  I love the fuzzy chickens like princess, and all your look very happy and snuggly in their car.  We have chickens at the school I work at and use their eggs in our baking.  I want to get some once we have room.

And our chickens stopped (or decreased) their egg laying when it got cold.  I've been told when the light changes for winter they stop until spring.  (I think.)
