Farmer Sue's Crazy Chicken Coop -- The Pull-it Palace
Ok - Rumor is Farmer Sue has gone totally CRAZY.
and it is probably true! I will be posting the details of my craziest idea every... The PULL-It Palace. I just purchased a tiny travel trailer that was falling apart. Painted Santa Fe blue or turquoise. See Sketch above. A couple of my tiny friends have helped me round up all the chickens who have decided to demolish the new landscaping up front...(note to all feathery friends: this was not a good idea)
I have been working non stop since Thursday on this crazy thing. Got it painted and a large percentage of myself... note oil based paint is hard to remove from lots of things... like my face! I have spent the last 2 days building a mobile 10'x20' foot run that will give my feathery friends 200 square feet of square dancing room. It is very very cool. The trailer will be used for sleeping and egg laying... They all went in last night and just this morning the hens laid 5 beautiful eggs in the cupboards! EGG citing to say the least -- I did a little happy dance.
Just a little more work on the runs to make sure they are safe and secure and then they are done. The trailer will get big white daisies painted on it with black chickens -- and then finally all new interior decorating. Cute colors on perches and wall - great art & new curtains. These girls will travel in style.
I can't wait to share it with you. I will post some Pull-it Palace Progress report photos in just a bit.
The name makes me laugh -- A pullet is a young hen who has just entered the egg laying age -- so i thought since you have to pull the trailer with the truck or tractor and it is going to be sassy cute it was perfect.
It will say Pull-It Palace on the outside with a cute hen wearing a tiara!
