Lavender Cottage said...

Hi Tracie
I never knew how much people loved their chickens. Several years ago I asked a couple on a local farm to be on our garden tour and made mention of their exquisite gazebo that the visitors would enjoy. She invited me to see the inside and it was a chicken coop palace.
Now I see your coop and it too is fit for royally treated chicks. It is awesome, just love it and look forward to more photos.

This is so crazy good! Chickens that live shabby chic and so stylin!

Maggie said...

this bring back memories, growing up we always had a chicken coop, but I hated having one due to the constant pooping cleaning duties i was elected to do, chicken poops a lot more so than birds.
I'm inviting you to join our linking party every Wednesday at
