Coop Tour 2014

The demand for farm fresh eggs has been so great we decided we needed more chickens! The first step in that direction was building a place for them to live. We modified a plan for a 10' x 12' shed to include some windows and a door we found at ReStore. We built fence posts from 2x4 scraps to create paddocks around the coop we can rotate the hens through. Finally, we purchased thirty young white rock hens just starting to lay.
The pullets (young hens) are learning where to lay their eggs and where to roost. They are laying some beautiful little eggs!  We hope to continue to supply eggs to our loyal customers and expand to farmer's markets or CSAs. Take a look at the tour and tell us what you think!
