Casa el Chicks

The chicks have a new home! We moved them today from the basement crate they have called home to a much bigger real Coop!

They have been trying to roost on their water, on their food, and on each other. It was time to give them big chicken accommodations. We moved this coop into the barn to protect it from wind and put bales of hay around the bottom on the outside to keep the air underneath warmer. We put some foam on the floor and hay on top, hung up their heat lamps, and Boom! Brand new awesome chick casa.

And they are getting HUGE!

We also had a lovely Yurt-giving. We had eight guests to the yurt and had a feast and a wonderful thankful gathering! Thanks for coming everyone!

The picture is blurry.... but a good time was had by all and it is always such fun to have so much energy in the Yurt.

Hope you all had a wonderful day as well!


  1. Your coop looks really good! What are you using for bedding, hay? I've read that straw isn't absorbent enough, but that hay makes good material for the nest box.

    Your yurt-giving looks like it was cozy. Another good things about a lot of bodies in a space is that they heat it up!

  2. Love, love, love the new chick casa! Great job and they all look very happy. Glad you had a great feast day too.
