Discuss, share and chat about all things relating to keeping Chickens including health issues
Originally I had these on separate pages, but to be honest it's long and hard work getting the pictures, resizing, optimizing and loading etc., so I thought it best you post direct.
Please post no more than four photo's bearing in mind this is ideally to show Visitors and other Member's what can be done and how other's have their setup.
Please put a brief description if appropriate.
Maybe it would be good to show one or two photo's of the inside of your Chicken House as well.
PLEASE DO NOT COMMENT / REPLY IN THIS THREAD - PHOTO'S ONLY.
If you have any points or questions, please open another thread or pm the Member.
I'm sure this will be of benefit to many and will certainly catalogue a great many designs, systems and what can be done in small / large areas etc. A great resource.
Please try to resize pictures to 468px wide before linking from Photoshop etc. This saves those without fast broadband waiting an eternity for them to load! (all pictures are -re-sized automatically to 468, but the closer they are to that size, the better).
Finally, please remember this is for Infrastructure as in Houses, Runs, Equipment, Interior of Chicken House, Fencing security etc. and not for Chicken Photo's, although I respect they do get in the way !!
VISITORS PLEASE NOTE
Should you see any somewhat scraggy looking Hen's, this is not because they are not well looked after, it's because they are recent arrivals from a Battery Farm. Many Members have rescued Hens.

Bit soggy after yesterdays all day rain, but snuggly buggly in the coop last night.

ok i promised you photo's of my coop so here goes,
coop (5ft x 4ft + 1ft nestbox)
run (4meters x 2 meters)
painted coop attached to run
run and coop has been made from recycled materials, total cost Â£60 for bolts, hinges, screws and chicken wire.
Some friends are like a slinky, boring till you push them down the stairs.
Well at long last here it is, I am now ready for hens. The free range area needs a bit of mesh here and there but the coop and pen is ready
Coop with my liitle helper
inside pen (still wants some bits and pieces of environment enrichment)

I share my life with: four beautiful children, two rabbits, two guinea pigs, five chickens (one ex batt) (RIP Esther 4/6/09; Elizabeth 23/6/09), one husband and his seven snakes
