Just wanted to share my coop that I built in February with my kids. I bought 12 mature red buff orpintons and built this coop for them. Since I'm in the building trades I got a little crazy but my coop couldn't have turned out better! Most of the materials used were western red cedar and cypress. I'm averaging 8-12 eggs per day right now. I have been wanting chickens for a few years and jumped at the chance of having my own fresh eggs to share and sell to friends and family. Looking forward to sharing and reading about everyone else's experiences! Rick

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
