We custom-make each hen house. No two are alike!

We can provide the hens for you! Easter Eggers or brown eggs!
We have Americauna, Buff Orpington, Barred Rock and New Hampshire Red pullets

Anyone with a little yard space can enjoy the satisfaction of raising their own hens, enjoying fresh, organic eggs...
What size chicken coop should you get? Most chickens do best when they have friends - so try not to get any less than 3 hens. But if you only want 1 -2 chickens we have an
 Economy Coop
~ Small sized coop:  best  if you have around 2 - 4 birds to take care of.
Medium sized coop: This is typically suited for 6 - 8 birds.

Large sized coop: These are best suited if you have poultry of over 10 birds

On the average, 3 hens will give you 2 eggs a day. That means to get a dozen eggs a day, you would need 18 hens... Generally they  start laying at 5 months of age. Fresh eggs can be stored in the refrigerator for a month or more!

Chickens are a great pet. They each have a personality and come running when you call.
Collecting the eggs isn't a chore - takes just minutes a day. With our easily accessible nest boxes - you don't even have to go inside the coop. The coop's easily accessible nest boxes means that you never have to go inside to collect the eggs. Simply lift the lid and reach inside.
Let your hens run free! They will usually stay in the yard and the added benefit - they'll eat weeds, get rid of unwanted bugs and leave fertilizer as they work.
Please note: Let them out of the coop or henhouse after they've laid their eggs. Otherwise, you'll find eggs all over the garden.

Old fashioned wooden arbor is an easy way to create a wonderful entrance to your garden or yard. Plant flowers along it's sides and your entrance becomes a focal point. Add a bench and the arbor becomes a serene place to relax. Flower boxes can also be added to the sides.

Jim made this arbor for our daughter Bethany to get married under. Now she and Ryan have an entrance to their new house with wonderful memories.



And this one for a close friend of ours

Years ago my father built a stool like this for my mother. We have had one ever since and are planning on building one for our children as they each obtain their first home. The stool
is easy to move, has a wooden handle for this and to hold onto when you are reaching for something on a top shelf. My mother is 5' tall and felt this stool gave her the stability to reach those cabinets.


One step stool: The decorative handle makes this stool easy to move and gives support when you step up on it. Great for bathrooms where children need a little help in reaching the faucet. Non-skid tread adds to the safety of this stools
