So, we set out on an adventure building our recycled pallet chicken coop!
It was pretty fun ,but just when we figured we were making some headway it seemed to never end! Here we used pallets for the base, floor and studs.
My yard looked terrible with all the broken pallets and junk around but was totally worth saving quite alot of money:)
Then again, we had these sweet turkeys waiting for us to hurry up! these guys are one day old here. and broad breasted bronze heritage breed turkeys.
Meet Biscuit. That is him above , they sweet little fellow behind him ended up dying unfourtunatly, so bisciut was pretty lonely. I took him under my wing and hes doing great. Here he is 2 weeks old.
Its almost there!!! We can see the light! It helped to have a husband who knows electrical, so we could wire in lights and heat lamps. Each side is seperate for turkeys and chickens and night.
Pallet board outside...
Nesting boxes are almost done...
We found this great window used from some neighbors for cheap, so that was a great find!
Geezzzzzzz, I love turkeys, they are so docile & calm.
This is Rocky & Mini awaiting their chicky side to hurry up and be finished...
Now to just keep an eye on all these kitties who are very interested in all the events going on over here!
Linking to the following great bloggy parties!
