Yay for the arrival of the ladies! Have you prepared Sugarwings for the eventual covering of the house with a grand layer of poo? Poor Sugarwings!

Don't you wish there was a way to reason with our animals sometimes? "OK, ladies, See this box right here? This is 'poo corner.' Here and only here. It'll make this place a lot more pleasant for us all. Got it? Great!"

I hope all goes well with the new residents. : ) Looking forward to hearing of their adventures.

Adorable CHIC COOP for your hens. Your idea of colorful egg-laying hens would be fun. I've seen blue, green, yellow & brown eggs. Are there any that lay pink eggs?

Karla ~ Love seeing your new girls. You will like when they can roam free. NO bugs will be in your yard. Of course the flower beds may suffer. I've put chicken wire down and covered with a thin layer of mulch, that seems to be working for now. We also put golf balls in their nest boxes to get them started laying there. Enjoy!!

New Chickens!! How exciting and they have such a fancy coop, not country chicks at all!


Too much fun, Karla! 'Love the photos! I'm not sure about the cats either -- but I wouldn't want to take any chances!

Love the photo of Ariel looking in the mirror, great.

The "girls" will love it at your house,
it all looks so nice.
They have a nice home.
It will be great if they can be free in your garden (later).

Cutest pictures or your "chicks". Love the one where Sugarwings and the chicken are looking in the mirror. And those overalls are perfect!


It's nice to be back. Between three weeks of travel and two weeks of Gypsy-hospice and work re-entry, life's been pretty rugged. It's good to be back posting travel (and goodbye Gypsy) posts. This one makes me smile.


Happy Days are Here Again!!

Wish I had a chicken or two. I gave the last eggs to Ted and my son for breakfast this morning as I ate peanut butter toast!



Love your coop Karla....... I think the chickens will be fin with the cats. The chickens can defend themselves pretty well. I laughed out loud when you said Sugarwings thinks of it as a playhouse now but it hasn't been pooped in much yet. It won't smell too inviting either on a hot summer day. Too cute ...all of it. Good luck with your hens !


Love your chic coop, chandeliers and all! My mother loved Rhode Island Reds. We had a fenced "chicken yard" for them to roam around outside their coop. I believe they clipped the wing feathers some to keep them from flying out :) If you get a rooster, he'll guard his girls from the cats & probably scare little Twinkle away. Also good as alarm clock!
What fun you'll all have with your new pals!

Karla, I love having hens. Make sure that sugarwings washes her hands and keeps them away from her face. When My daughter was her age, she got salmonella from being in the coop and touching the eggs.

Kathy B.

I love this! So open and airy too.

Nancy clementi

Wow I love this place I’m sure all your little ladies are so very happy.
I can’t wait to move to Virginia to set all my girls up there new place.

Karla Nathan

Chickens can be wonderful to have around! Good luck to your ladies in their new home.


I absolutely love looking at your chicken pen it is just the most wonderful thing ever and I would like to create this as I have just bought a cottage in France in the country with a swimming pool and want to get started with the chicken run if this virus eventually goes from the world. Would you mind me asking what color white paint that is what shade of white and what make it is please


Planning a coop is a happy way of getting through this! My walls actually are a pale pink. It was leftover colors mixed together and applied with a spray gun to get into the cracks easily.
