Wow $100 a month is pretty steep! We just brought a coop for $179 off ebay which is pretty cool. I'm not handy and neither is DP so making one was not a great idea for us. Rescuing a chicken sounds awesome. Perhaps if any of mine turn out to be roosters I might look into that for replacements...

We almost have chickens - haha.
We have a chicken house that hubby just built that will hopefully keep the foxes out. It has the nexting boxes and perching place for the night and an extended run area for them during the day.
It is near our 'food forest' and evenutally we will built a big fence around that so they can roam in that.
We won't have free range per say as PP mentinoed they dig/scratch EVERYTHING all day long - great for clearing out weeds and keeping the understory of trees in good order but not great for a vegie garden.
We have ordered the chickens they will be ready in September - not sure what sort they are hubby has organised it.

Should mention my 2 cats and 4 chickens get on great. No worries! We are in Brisbane and all 4 are out in their coop at night time. They are adults though.

She looks really comfy there jbish.
[I say - 'cause that comb sands out a bit]

Yes I agree about the comb this is the biggest of them too. I'll be sad if 'she' is a 'he' so fingers crossed

That comb does stand out, but such a cute lap chook
I had a broody hen hatch 12 chicks once and 8 were roosters. They were crazy crowing all the time, they never got the dawn memo.
The only problem we have with cats is not them eating the chooks, but the eggs. But I assume they eat them because they are farm strays so therefore hungrier than a city cat who would more than likely have an owner and regular food source.
My chooks are looking pretty sad atm with feather loss and lack of eggs. I'm sure it happens every winter till the sun starts shining more regularly again. Anyone elses look like that at this time of year?

Im just sad because if 'she' is a 'he' he'll have to go. I wish I was on acreage! Then there would be no stopping me having all the animals I want lol
