We have chickens!

We moved house recently, and now have a much bigger backyard. One of our plans was to eventually get chickens too. We wanted a coop that would last a little longer then the 'mansion cage' we bought for the guinea pigs at our last house (it started falling apart after about 2 years!). So we went with this one from a local aussie retailer. It is suppose to be double the strength of the regular fir wood cages - and certainly weighs about twice as much! 

The whole cage measures 3.6m x 1.1m. The pen area is 6m x 3m so hopefully they have enough space to be happy. We bought 4 araucana cross breed hens who will apparently lay blue/green eggs! They're beautiful little creatures.
