I Feel (Chicken) Cooped Up!

I think I am a farm girl at heart.  I love animals.  Pretty much all animals.  And when you live in suburbia dreaming about farm life, the life you might hope to have one day, you inevitably end up on Pinterest.  Okay so what I mean is everyday I end up on Pinterest.  And what do you find on Pinterest?  Chicken coops!  You just knew I was going to say that didn’t you?  Even in suburbia you can have chicken coops you know…just go easy on the roosters if you do!  No one likes a rooster in suburbia.

Chicken coops come in all shapes and sizes.  The most amazing one I have seen is one on a blog call The Fancy Farm Girl, a chicken coop from heaven…very special.  So that one is top of the wish list, but I have also found others that are pretty cool as well.

Oh, and if you are thinking of buying chickens cause it looks like fun, please think again.  As in all animal purchases they are living beings and require and deserve care.  So if you can not provide adequate shelter or feed or all those other things required for survival, don’t purchase.  I don’t have chickens because I can’t provide for them as needed.  And I would be one of those crazy people who would bring them into the house, in the AC, when it is stinking hot…and lately they would be inside a fair bit.

Made from pallets and recycled wood!  I’m pretty sure you can get used pallets for less than $5 and the other bits and pieces needed can be purchased from a second-hand shop I suppose.  And don’t forget about Ebay for some of these sorts of things.

Who would have thought about an old car body for chickens?  Not me…nice to know though.

Even on the inside, you can recycle .  Buckets! Awesome.

Okay, so this is ridiculous!  How amazing is that.  A tin roof made from cans!!  Who thinks of doing this kind of thing?  This person, clearly!  I think the pictures demonstrate how to make them.  Probably should wear gloves and I think making this roof would be a little challenging but worth the effort.  Luv it!  (after much searching I have found this on Instructables.com)

Don’t forget your chicken sky light!

❤ ❤ ❤ Leadlight windows ❤ ❤ ❤

Maybe one day.  The dream is to move to Tasmania, where it is nice and cold, and buy myself a farm…nice dream to have too.

I even have a picture, taped to the back of my front door, of 3 white chickens in a rustic kitchen, inside a renovated church…it’s all about goals!

Have an eggcelent day!

I crack me up…sorry.
