  1. neat. so the chicks have the run of your yard during the day??

  2. Great. What happens when your house is foreclosed? A lot of chicken dinner.

  3. As far as I know they stay in the chicken run of the coop. It’s about 8′ x 4′. He and his wife do really like their chickens, which makes me think there is a good chance they give them another area to roam…but I really don’t know, for he didn’t mention it to me at the time.

  4. I wish that upon no one. I would like to share that raising chickens in your backyard is very popular here in the Portland area. A friend was looking for a home for her backyard coop, for she had to move. Turns out the new residents really wanted the coop!

    It has been in the back of my mind to investigate the possibility of raising chicken here where we live.
    Thanks for some more inspiration.

  6. buff orphingtons lay brown eggs, not white. sorry to correct you, you have a really nice coop and cool girls!

  7. chickens are wonderful. And chicken tractors are helpful if you have a large area to raise your flock. That way you will not have to clean the coop as much. You just roll it to a new spot. Thanks for sharing.

  8. At 1:24 you say the one white egg is from a Buff Orpington when they lay light brown eggs which means it is not from a Buff Orpington.
