Extreme Chicken Coop Make Over

Over the past couple of days the crew at Premier has done a Hen House Extreme Make-Over on our East Farm. We decided that the coop that we have been using for the last few years needed to be renovated so we power-washed, painted and added a south facing window.

We relocated the roost and nest boxes as well as added a new sloping roof to the boxes. We updated the electrical system and revamped the feeder hanging system to allow us to test and evaluate new feeders easier.

Also on the East Farm the outside crew has installed 26 new tile risers and modified or fixed 14 others. This was really time consuming but a task that needed to be done since we purchased this piece of property.
