Coop was originally built using only reclaimed materials, but in order to get it to fit on our sloped property, we had to add some new lumber. 90-95% reclaimed. 8 chckens (2 silver wyandottes, 6 EE's/Ameraucanas) We have also finished restoring a reclaimed chicken tractor (a time out area for our loud girls).
DoneCampo CluckersMelanie Moyermelanie.moyer@hotmail.com13851 Campo Vista Lane - Los Altos Hills, CA 94022650-766-1995Our site is a former apricot orchard that we are transitioning into mostly drought tolerant natives. Chickens are a recent addition, we received them from a neighbor four months ago. Coop is a very sturdy 4'x8' two story wood structure that was reclaimed from Stanford Community Garden prior to it being moved. The coop houses four chickens who are about 3-1/2 years old. Breeds we have are Ameraucana, Rhode Island Red, Plymouth Rock and Polish Crested. Drip irrigation is used as is grey water irrigation.

Los Altos Hills CA 94022650-796-8272Backyard coop and run with an old Giant Cochin, three Easter Eggers, two Rhode Island Reds, one sweet Barred Rock and one large, mean Barred Rock named Eleanor Roosevelt. Our Giant Cochin kindly hatched three mystery babies for us this summer (fertile eggs came from another farm), and we believe they are cochin and barred rock or Brahma, we can't really tell! Adoptive mamma, Mrs. Fluff, loves them no matter what their lineage. We have a shady tree swing for the little ones, and will offer something cool to drink for thirsty travelers.
doneShannon FarmGeoff & Natalie Woodcockgeoff@ubcomputer.com15815 Shannon Road Los Gatos CA408-608-5131We have some Buf Orphingons and some Blue Cochin chicks. We have an automatic door on the coop which we really like. The coop itself was designed by some crazy engineer in Santa Cruz whom I bought it from. It's quite sturdy, functional, and well insulated if a bit heavy/overbuilt. I have the plans if anyone is interested. We have a little garden and a greenhouse as well. We also keep bees - just harvested 80 lbs of honey from 2 hives! We could probably break some out if anyone is and hives are located near what we refer to as the "Shannon river" - a creek that runs down the north side of Shannon road. Unfortunately it is dry right now, but if we get a good rain it might be running! Our "farm" area is nothing fancy, just hoping to meet some nice people and exchange ideas!
