~ little barn ~
The "little barn" houses all of my white Silkies. There's only 6 of them so they have plenty of room to roam. Misty & Prissy are caged for the night in here too. During the day, they are in the outside area under the canopy. I will also continue to use this barn as the brooder area for my new hatches. They will stay here until approximately 2 months of age when they are moved up to the "big barn" (just in time for the new batch of peeps).
The "big barn" coop is a lean-to attached to a 27 x 27 pole barn. It is divided into 4 coops
which allows me to keep the colors separated. Initially the poultry run was outside the polebarn.
This Spring I moved it to under the roof of the barn which is working out much better. No longer have the shade problem to resolve !!
