Our Hen Houses/ Coops

Postby jaydee67 » 03 Apr 2008, 21:58

I'm starting this thread for people to add photos of their set ups to as we often have members asking what other people have. It may be an idea for mods to move the photos only to a locked thread so we can see them without the chat and let this thread continue with people able to add questions, etc. What do you think?

I think it will be easier if people post their own pics rather than me having to go looking for them! ;)

Ok heres mine, though plenty have seen these pics already.


THE RUN

THE BATHROOM

Image



THE DINING AREA

Image



STAIRS TO PERMANENTLY OPEN POP HOLE

Image


LAYING QUATERS (being shown by the real Bhindi)
Image


THE BEDROOM

Image



OUTSIDE ACCESS TO NEST BOXES

Image

These are quite old pics now, but I'm pleased to say all but 2 plants are thriving, (The 2 that died are both escalonia's.)

I will eventually take a pic of the other half of the brick built bit, that now sports a sink with hot and cold running water, and cupboards below, because I was getting grumbled at for my dirty foot prints in the kitchen when washing up bowls etc.

So I'm self contained in there now. (Have not got the kettle yet, but I'm planning on getting one) :lol:

you have to host them online somewhere like photobucket, then you can past in the url to the picture in between image tags [img]-url%20here-[/img] like that :)

Thats a great run! So much space and it looks really interesting inside too.My main concern is that you seem to have stolen my cat :lol: . I have a cat that looks exactly the same as yours.

Chicken coops

Postby lfreebs » 02 Jun 2008, 23:27

Kitsune thanks for the info on posting images.....derr.... what's photobucket ? Thought I was pretty good on the internet and PCs, do it all day at work, but haven't a clue what you are talking about !! When I upload onto ebay just do it through a browser, but I don't have access to a web page other than our FTP site at work and I don't think they would be too happy me uploading images of chicken coops onto that site !!

Everybody seems to be putting photos onto this site, please let me know how to do it - by way of an idiot's guide !

Seems I am learning more than I bargained for in this forum, it's all good stuff ! Must be able to let you see pics of my first chicks, if I get any.

Awaiting a reply with eager anticipation !

Many thanks, Lynda :lol: Oh yes why can't I get smilies like everybody else? I haven't disabled it by ticking the box. Oer, so new to this game !

Apply for a space in the Gallery - link at the top of the page. You can upload some pics there & then link them to your posts. :wink:
