We decided to make the big move to the new chicken coop after it had a few coats of white paint in the interior. Today we also bought:
Galvanized trash can (to hold feed) and some staples to nail down the wire – $26.37
50 pounds of feed, and larger waterer and feeder, shavings and a 100 foot roll of smaller gauge wire (trying to make this mouse and rat proof too) – $237.83
Two window boxes and brackets, 10 sacks of mulch, some flowers and potting soil – $242.87
The final bill for the coop and pen hit $4,743.53. I have not see the bill for the interior painting yet. They exterior will be painted soon – I hope.
Picture is of the six chickens sleeping under a heat lamp – I can’t find the receipt for that yet.
