I have had chickens about 15-20 years.
Right now I have 12 chickens. 7 of them are 7 years old or older. This week I adopted 5 new chickens ages ranging from 3 weeks to 5 months.
I have 1 copper maran (the oldest and not laying any more), 1 Americana. 3 silkies (one of which is a naked neck), 1 sultan, 1 frizzle, 1 black tailed Japanese bantam, 1 mille flour d’uccle, 1 bantam cochin, 1 small red chick (unknown breed) and 1 baby chick of unknown breed.
I don’t know if my coop is particularly unique. It is certainly not fancy and was built with a lot of recycled wood and chicken wire fencing. We have a large 2 sided room with corrugated metal roof so chickens have a lot of shade. The texting boxes are here as is the food and water. Then we have a fairly large outdoor space so that they can get plenty of sun as well. We also have a huge garden and I have enclosed photos below. We have no lawn.
As for other animals, we have 2 small dogs and lots of neighborhood cats spend time in my yard,
Below are photos taken at different times around my garden.
