These guys have such a herd mentality, it’s amusing. They’re usually all together. They are a mixed lot, straight-run. So they’re both males and females, all breeds. So, not particularly “meat” birds by definition, just meat birds in the sense that we plan to eat them.
And here’s their home. The run disassembles for off-season storage. This coop will not be in use in the winter, so after we are done with the run in the fall, we can take it apart until we need it again. This also allows us to put the run together in different configurations if we want.
Part of the run is covered with a tarp to give the birds some shade, some dry outdoor space, and also to keep the rain out of the food.
And here’s the house. It’s got two large windows, and the entire front end there is the door.
