Here at Linden Lodge, we are all about home and family, simple, honest living and down-to-earth values. If you raise chickens, these things are important to you, too so it was only natural that we would invite seven new occupants to come home to roost! Having chickens in our own coop at the Lodge is so much more than getting fresh eggs… It’s a wonderful experience for the whole group. The residents especially will love interacting with the chickens and most are eager to learn about taking care of them.
For us here at Linden Lodge, the fluffy little chick to be cradled in our hands and lovingly nurtured so carefully is more than an “egg-producing machine.”
We want to make sure she has a safe and comfortable place to live when we move her (and her sisters!) out from under the brooder light and into the big wide world.
Regardless of where you live, the critters that love to prey on chickens are everywhere… raccoons, coyotes, hawks, weasels, snakes – the list is endless. Our coop is built to keep them at bay. Right now we are still in the process of making sure there aren’t any sharp edges so the chickens don’t hurt themselves, and making sure they are safe from predators in a fenced-in area.
Everything is starting to come together to provide The best housing for our backyard flock.
We look with anticipation to the day we proudly collect our very first egg, from our very own chicken coop!
