The Chicken Coop Renovation
While our farmhouse is undergoing major renovations, our chickens are enjoying their newly-renovated home as well. Before our Ameraucana chickens arrived, Earl needed to renovate the chicken coop that had been used in the early 1900's to raise chickens.
The coop has now been completely scrrubbed, and our chickens have new roosts (constructed from some old ladders we found), luxurious new nest boxes, a convenient new "chicken door," and a big, sunny outdoor space for scratching. Take a look at these photos of the renovation project!
During the renovation, we discovered a few old wooden boxes that were used to transport eggs to customers many years ago. Painted on the front of the boxes -- "Hill Top Poultry Farm - South Westport, MA" -- what a great find!
