That is a wonderful addition to your backyard! Congratulations! :D

May we see also the interior decor? Window boxes are feed and water containers I think?

The only thing missing is a sign on the door Saying

"Cubby House"

to match the sign saying

"Chook House"

I am not sure on the sizing though..great looking that it all is..but 9 chooks in that space may be get overcrowded? Are they bantam or large?
Do they get to free range out of the pen each day?
