The weather has not improved much these past few weeks, so the coop is still not finished...It really just needs the final coat of paint, and the chicken wire attached to the outside. It looks so awesome to have it all primed and gleaming! Our four new chickens are getting bigger by the day, and I can't wait to have them out of our spare bathroom, and into their home.
I wonder how difficult it will be to assimilate the babies into the existing flock...we are going to section off the hen house into two separate areas. That way they are always in direct line of sight for awhile. I will try and let them all free range, to see if they start to merge together, and it may go quickly. The Silkies are one of the most docile of breeds, so who knows?
