Default Chicken coop and thanks to a fellow Saltycajun.

Thanks to Shawn Braquet for fixing me up with the chicken coop. My kids and my wife have enjoyed watching the chicks grow and their amusing behavior. This is my sons first experience with raising yard buzzards and even though a little reluctant at first is fascinated with their growth. My daughter has one that is like a pet to her. Everywhere she went Goldie had to go also.

My neighbors already think we are very weird and you didn't help out. I'm sitting in the backyard watching the chicks I just stuck in the pen. When I read this I busted out laughing. In a week two you can have all the roosters you want.

These are the ones I'm talking about..... http://www.qcsupply.com/420011-push-...le-nipple.html All together its about $20-25 in materials but well worth it. I think for chickens the nipples should be 12-18" off the ground. The chickens learn pretty quickly to drink from it.

I have the nipples under a 5 gal bucket. Best thing I ever bought for the chickens!! All you have to do is keep water in the bucket. No more cleaning poop off everything!!

You have the pipe outside the coop I'm assuming. What do y'all have for feeders?

The bigger pipe is on the outside. The smaller pipe goes into the coop. I use an old baking pan for a feeder pan. Fill it once in the AM

I have a feeder that I hang. The bottom of the feeder is a few inches below the head of the chicken. That way they don't scratch and throw all the feed every where. Saves on the feed bill.
