What you can't see, behind the new paint job, is that we have also done more work on the inside of the coop: we moved the interior wall to make more room for the chickies, and cut the remaining space in two with another wall. So now we have two separate enclosures for chickens (which will come in handy when the roosters start picking on the hens) with some remaining space for storage.
We're also doing more work on the fencing, replacing some rotten bottom boards, shoring up three wobbly fence posts, and patching a few holes in the chicken wire. We've also had to sink a new post to mount a secondary gate. That means we not only have two separate interior areas for chickens, each half-flock can also have its own yard, if necessary.
Boy, this has been a lot of work, and we're not quite done yet. The current rooster/hen count is 5/5, so those five roast chicken dinners and all those lovely eggs come spring are going to feel well earned.
