My chicken coop is not the best or most expensive coop to be sold by TCS, but it has done a good job for the last few years. This year my son-in-law, Mark, nailed it together in several spots, but it is a fragile little coop. The recent beautiful rains caused the wood to swell, and once I lowered the back door, I couldn’t get it shut. So, for the past week, I have wired the back door shut to keep varmints away from the chickens. Tonight, I was able to get that door to shut properly. My six little chickens are fluffing out, and at least one of them is laying an egg a day. The alternate explanation is that each hen is laying an egg once a week. I couldn’t even guess that answer. There is something very primal about harvesting your own chicken eggs. It’s a very satisfying feeling.
