Pa Mac quickly builds a small log chicken house from materials on hand. But this episode to speaks to something just a tad deeper than extra room for a few chickens: That inner conflict of perfectionism that sometimes affects people in varying degrees. Watch the show and—if you’ve got an extra minute—leave a comment elaborating on what you think he’s trying to say. Be sure and subscribe to the Farm Hand’s Companion channel to keep up with the progress as Pa Mac takes an undeveloped piece of property and turns it into a small subsistence farm. Watch for new episodes as often as Pa Mac can crank ’em out and still run a farm. (As long as he’s alive and kicking, he’s most assuredly farming and filming!) Also visit to find articles, posts, photographs, and encouragement for today’s self-sufficient farm or homestead.

    Am i dreaming or in the start were there chickens in stacked cages? Complete disregard to the welfare of these prisoners. Unbelievable!

    What is your suggestion for preventing critters like foxes or raccoons from getting into the coop? The raccoons out here are nearly the size of dogs, and some are VERY aggressive. I've had to smack one away with a shovel when it tried to attack me in the garage (it was a male, not a female protecting babies).

    Lovely content, far above average… but MAN, that music… why??? After 2 times it gets mind numbing, so repetitive, what's the added value?
    Tons of respect to you guys who create such great stuff and thank you for it, but I just don't get it.
    Fouch-o-matic and many others: same thing. There simply is no NEED for the music, the footage is excellent as is!

    Oh well… great channel!

    which took longer, the chicken coop or the video?

    What did you use for nest ?  Can you reach the nesting box from outside ? What did you use to make the door to secure them at night ? Will you be mudding the cracks in the future to 'winterize' the chicken coop ?  Inquiring minds want to know…the rest of the story 🙂

    love how you built such a gorgeous coop by creatively re cycling and resourcing all the materials lying around that still had use left in them, brilliant! Love the creative way you shared this with us too!
