Guest Posts – Check out our latest!

I feel so lucky to have had two recent opportunities to guest post. If you get a moment, head over to these ladies’ lovely blogs and show some love.  

Heather Harris – The Homesteading Hippy – is doing a great series of posts leading up to Earth Day this year.  I contributed a post on  repurposing trash to use as seed starting pots. –   Something simple we can all do to reduce our footprint just a little.

Mary – of the blog Raising Dick and Jane – is thinking about getting chickens!  I contributed a post on six things to consider when designing a coop – .  I think it is a great article for the person who is just getting into the world of chicken raising. 

I’d love to hear what you think of the posts.  Leave me a comment if you’ve got something to say.

      I absolutely agree with designing coops with your local area predators in mind. The bigger, and more fierce your predators, the larger your secure day run should be. As we discovered last week, even some of our smaller predators have no qualms about hauling off a 20lb turkey hen, and burying her. My only other requirement with coops is they must be exquisitely easy to clean! However, predator protection is always our first priority.

        Easy to clean! Duh! How could I forget! As the ONLY one around here that cleans the coop, I can’t believe I didn’t include that one.

      Great post! We just got chickens. I’ve been thinking about it and it was a spur of the moment purchase. They are living in a storage tub in the basement. We have decided to buy a pre-fab coop (think IKEA for chickens) because we’ve argued fiercely over what kind of coop and this is just easier. Thanks.

        All of the pre-fab ones I’ve seen have been ADORABLE and look like they are well made. I’d LOVE to hear about your experience with it. In fact, if you’d like to guest post on it after you’ve started using it, I’d love that! I’m sure there are many people that consider buying them but aren’t sure what they are really like to use.
