Chicken Herder

Wylie is practicing his herding skills on the little Bantams, but I really wonder who is herding who?!? The construction material is the coop de ville, hopefully the weather will cooperate this week and they can get the coop built!

Coop de ville

I think the end result is with it, he probably doesn't think so.

Getting Ready to Start

This is the inspiration for our new coop de ville.  This coop is located in Missouri, on a beautiful old  abandoned farmstead.

Chicken Update

These are our meat birds.  I can't believe how fast they grow. R is busy getting the WhizBang chicken plucker finished up.  I hope they get the coop built soon so they can't enjoy a few days/weeks in their new home, before they take a ride in he WhizBang.

Our Reds are the same age as the meat birds, 5 weeks old. They are a very docile breed and like attention.

This is one of the 6 Bantams. They are 2 weeks old now.  Such a big attitude for little bird.   We also have 7 Buffs that are the same age.
