Chicks of Paradise Hen House--The Exterior

A week ago Sunday was a sun filled backyard kind of day! 

We support free range chickens.

Checking out Kurt's handiwork.

They were all up in his business of transplanting the tulips. He wanted to make it pretty for his girls :)

Before the Coop sign was painted.

Cooper is starting to believe he's a chicken too...

We enjoy this kind of yard work.

Busy painting they're coop sign.

Cooper herds the chicks around the yard making sure they stay all together.


Where the hole is will be a false drawer front to match the other side.

We made them some outdoor space for when we're home. It's not covered so we won't let them be out there whenever they want.

Stay tuned for the inside tour! Take note that the tulips Kurt so lovingly transplanted are completely flattened! Thanks Cooper. He also either chews up the plants we put in pots or un-plants them for us. How nice of him! So yea the urban farming is over seeing as the tomatoes, spinach and broccoli have been scattered around the yard! Maybe they'll come up through the grass ;)

Happy Monday <3 Delighted. and ZZB

Bonding Time.

About a week ago we came home from date night and decided some family bonding time was in order. 

 So we let the chicks out.
 Mango or Coral?? They look a lot alike now... We're quite possibly calling them the wrong names...
 A little time for dancing...
 Dance showdown... who's the better chick?

Coop continues to be a very good dog!

Today, we have the chickens outside in their new enclosure for a few hours to enjoy the beautiful sunshine. They're plucking away at the weeds, worms, grass, bird seed, dandelions and whatever else they can find. As soon as we put them outside Cooper ran to find his frisbee and brought it over to the chicks, like "Come on throw it for me, please throw it!' He gets so excited and just wants them to play with him. <3 

This week we've started giving the chicks some scraps. We learned they LOVE mushrooms, watermelon, and string cheese, but could care less about broccoli and spinach. I read they like crushed up hard boiled eggs and that they're really good for them, but Kurt says that's cannibalism, so for now they get to munch on some empty shells--a good source of calcium.

Off to work on their coop in the sunshine! Have a fantastic sun filled day!
