MY SISTER LORI'S CHICKEN COOP

Hello Everyone.

I am still sick with this crud. 
I have been to the doctor 6 times and still
cannot get rid of this bronchitis and sinus
infection.
Am getting tired of it.

Anyway, hope that you guys are well and
staying safe and of course are blogging!!
Hehehe

MY SISTER LORI'S CHICKEN COOP is
so adorable and little!
I am so pleased that she loves it.

Making both of these coops took me about 4 months
of constantly working on them.
Lesley helped me with the 12th scale cause this was the
first time I had ever put a kit together. 
So, while at her house I worked on my chicken coop
and then went home and did the same thing to the
half-scale coop!
Boy these 2 coops were a lot of work!

Here is the finished coop.
This chicken coop only has one chicken and she is
playing in the tire.
Basically this is a turkey-chicken coop!
Hehehehe


This little turkey sure is strutting around like he owns
the place.
Hehehe
I think that I would love to take both of the turkeys
and cut their feet away from the green base so that
I could make them look more realistic.


I hope you like the hanging door.
Our family's chicken coops door was always 
hanging off like that.
The chickens and ducks all shared this coop and
they never cared.
The nail is there so the door can be shut at night.


The side also has a small bag of feed but it is
still huge compared to this house.


The back of the coop.


All of the roofs come off just like the larger coop
for easy access.


Top view with the roof off.
You can see the aqua colored dirty swing that the
chicken plays on. 
The little feeder in the corner.


Thru the netting you can see the aqua swing.
I painted it this color so you could see it.


A better view of the door.


This is still the back.
Notice all of that cement to help keep down
the coop.
No one cared.


This is the top of the hen house.


This is the inside of the hen house.
If you zoom in you can see the eggs.


View of the side.
The top doors slide open.
The little cut out on the doors
is so the miniature doll can put
her fingers in there to slide the
doors open.


I love the way this looks.
Whenever I peer in it is always at this room
Something about it that I like I guess.
I guess it is because it looks like nite-fall.


Daytime view.


A better view of the little feeder inside the door.
Believe me it looks big - but it is very small.


This is a good view too.


OOps there appears to be a board loose!
Hehehe


I wanted you to see the 2 roofs.
Nothing fancy here.


Sorry about the blur on this picture.
I didn't realize it was blurry.
Here are the eggs that the 'she' chicken laid
and she don't tend to them!
Bad chicken!!
Hehehe


Here is 'she' chicken playing in that tire.


Here the sliding doors on this coop and all
of that messy concrete.
Somebody didn't know what they were doing
or didn't care. 
By the way - on both of the chicken coops
these top houses lift off.


I hope that you got a laugh at this coop also.
Humor is good!!
Hehehe


I like to peek in at all angles at this chicken.
She is just minding her own business.
Hehehe


I hope you enjoyed this half-scale chicken coop.
All weathered and about to fall down.
No telling what I try to figure out what to do to
help that along!

Thank you for visiting me!

    Hope you get past all of the illness soon and that your immune system has become bionic because of it! Stay safe, Conny!

  3. Your Old-looking chicken coop is right up my alley, and having the door hanging half-off its hinges was a stroke of Genius! It immediately tells the story of age and some neglect as does the old tire that the she chicken is inside of: just like a Real Life. My great aunt used to have a chicken coop in her backyard and as a result, I've found chickens and their habitats fascinating.
    Your poultry appears to be quite content judging by the number of eggs in the nesting box so I'd say your results are EGGcellent!
