Going Bright

Today was another chicken coop building day. Oh my goodness, am I ever sore and tired. But still going!

Today, we started out by painting. Check out this amazing color! I know, it's bright. Quite over the top. But think... Key West, or Belize, or Hawaii, or where ever your favorite tropical spot with chickens running loose is... and you'll see where I'm going. Happy. This thing is going to brighten up my whole yard, even when it's raining!

Zoe thinks it's great too. She is hoping it's her new dog house.

This is as far as we got today. I think we are off to a great start.

And here are some inspiring cottages and chicken coops, just because.


  1. Those little cottages/chicken coops/studios etc are just way too cute, GORGEOUS colors. I hope your chickens appreciate this fantastic effort.

  2. I love those chicken photos on flickr! That made me laugh out loud when I saw them a minute ago!

  3. You have made great progress! Love the color, I'm thinking of something like that to paint parts of my fence by the pool and want to paint my deck also. Love all the cottages and coops in their wonderful colors.

  4. Love all the chicken updates and the color is amazing! We went to Key West for about 5 days last May and got the biggest kick out of all the chickens roaming the streets.

  5. Oooh, you're giving me a case of chicken coop wanna-makes. We have a few dozen chicken running around. In the evenings they mosey back to an entirely uninspired coop that's really a repurposed shed with roosts. I've always wanted to try one of those glass-walled buildings made with leftover bottles and mortar. I'll keep dreaming. Good luck with your fowl.
