he-e-e-re chicky, chicky, chicky!

Never mind a uniform - I love a man in boots.
Means work is getting done.
Something's getting built.

Know what this is going to be?
A chicken tractor. Yep, a coop on wheels!
Day 1 - its just a box .

It has 3 little nesting boxes inside.

Day 2 - it gets a tin roof, a yard,

an awning and a ramp up to the front door,

I plan to add " faux" windows with window boxes.
I just need to decide about what colour to paint it. Any idea's?
And then I'll be ready for 3 fluffy little spring chicks.

That's Mr Vintage's hand holding the window. He was the foreman at the construction site ( mostly his driveway )
You should check out Vintage Gal's barn here and here.

Hey Ruby! You best be getting home before dark!

Hope your weekend was terrific!

  1. That is the coolest thing Karen! I love the tin roof, and the windows. Can't wait to see it when it's all finished. :-)

  2. Well that is very cute! If I were a chicken I may be tempted to move in!

  3. Love it Karen!! I love chickens!

  4. Very cute chicken coop! I would paint it barn red or some other color that goes with your house.
    Looking forward to seeing it completed.
