Farm Fresh

… Fresh on to the farm. Here is an occassional chronicle of a new family in a small town.

Chicken Coop and Compost

Looks like Justin is okay with a chicken coop. One thing I’ve discovered out here is that I love farm fresh eggs. I can’t stand anything else! So, while I may not be too excited about cleaning up chicken poo, I’m willing, and excited to build a coop.

In the planning stage I’ve found these links for inspiration:

Additionally, we’re going to need a compost soon. Here are some plans and resources I’m looking at:
