Oh I wish. That was taken during my visit to the Tulsa fair. I currently don't have any chicks/hens, yet. Getting my birds in October. I went ahead and got the chicken coop first.

Better to put the coop before the chicken. ;)  We didn't have our chickens at the Tulsa fair but did have them at the Payne County Fair.

My girls names are: Celestia, Nightmare Moon, Torchic and we lost Alucard. That's right they are from My Little Pony, Pokeman, and Hellsing.

O ok that's a great of plan. Unlike me I wasn't expecting to get chickens when a rooster showed up at my house. So I didn't have the chance to build a coop before we got chickens.

You could get some rubber tubing from lowes and put the wire through the tubing.


Or put up cardboard....  I do tarps over chainlink... so rub points are everywhere.      I have also layed PVC across to make the tarp do a peak so the only place touching are the edges.  The peak makes water run off better... Not perfectly but better.

What kind of chickeneer are you? You're giving the rest of us a bad name!  :lau  Don't you know you're supposed to get the chicks first, THEN start building the coop?!?! Then get side tracked so that they are full grown before you actually get the coop finished?  You NEED to have chickens running around inside your house, the significant other threatening divorce proceedings, and all your friends thinking you've finally gone over the edge! That's the best fun of chicken ownership dontchaknow. ;)

I do the tarps on welded wire dog kennels so there isn't any rubbing. And to keep the wind from taking the tarps I put string in an x to hold the tarp closer to the pen so the wind isn't able to pull the metal rings out of the tarps.

I know....my brain does not work the normal way haha, even that I am not getting birds until later on, I just wanted to get the coop crossed in my mental list, I am a list person, if its on my list it drives me crazy, so I knew I could cross that out, and I did...haha.
