Just the other day I showed you a vlog of all the work I did on the chicken coop. What was once named the poop coop by twitch chat lol It took a lot of work to get this chicken coop ready for 9 hens and 1 rooster which I show often in my instagram reels at GubbaHomestead.
I was out doing my normal morning to do list on the homestead with my trusty dog Kintla and noticed I smelled smoke. That’s not uncommon though as my neighbors including myself use wood stoves to heat our houses and it was a cold morning. I went ahead and continued to do my work and eventually ventured back towards the coop to let the chickens out. As I walked closer the smell of smoke increased and my mind became flooded knowing something was wrong! I flew open the door as smoke billowed out! I raced over to find what you see in this video and quickly counted the chickens with a sigh of relief knowing they were all accounted for and safe.
Since then I decided to get 4 more hens which will be added to the homestead soon! I also did a lot of research to find better ways to heat the chicken coop that are much safer alternatives to what my setup was which you can find here. How to safely head your chicken coop
Till next time my friends! I'll have a surprise soon of a new addition to the homestead which was one of the coolest experiences of my life.
