It has begun, The Great Chicken Addiction.
Started gathering Ideas and Items.

2 wooden boxes, mesh metal scraps & sheeting, house paint, tar paper.
BOUGHT=2x4's, 1x3's, sheets of plywood, 3 small boxes of screws,
5 sheets of osb, grey paint @ habitat store, hardware cloth, chicken wire
Scully ground off all of the bolts on the floor of the trailor.
