I'm finally done! Winter coops are ready for the chooks, they'll be moved to their new quarters as soon as the temps are steady cold and the snow hits the ground, should be within the next two weeks.

Talk about months of work, geez!

The barn was sanitized, all the windows changed, walls stripped to the studs to make way for new insulation, horse stalls converted to deluxe quarters with sleeping pallets, perches, nesting boxes, lots of scrubbing and paint to brighten things up... whew. I'm officially sick and tired of the renos now, LOL!

But oh, so worth it to keep the flocks happy, healthy and warm for the winter.

The girls are laying quite well these days despite a few of them still molting or coming out of a molt, and a few girls whose hormones seem to have dried up - so weird.

I'll post pics once the flocks are in as the bedding and sand boxes aren't being set up until the last minute to keep things fresh.

You are one good Mama Hen!

We are only gettting one egg a day from eight layers, although some have finished moulting. I miss those eggs!

Looking forward to seeing the cozy photos.

Hugs, Sarah x
