Chicks Love Garden Benches 3/20/10 Here is a garden bench we made in about an hour, without having to purchase anything. Actually, it took me about an hour to clean it off, and an hour to build it. The DH built me the bench when we first moved into the house, and the hardware cloth was leftovers from we first built the coop. We needed a secondary brooder to "grow out' the larger chicks so the younger chicks can go into The Hot Chick Room. We used a garden bench that had been doing duty...

OK- So here is a brief overview of the adventures we had building the coop. The DH is a welder, so all steel was tear-off, scrap, or recycled. It was important we used what we had, could recycle, or get used. In the end, we only had to buy concrete mix and the hardware cloth. And tack screws. LOTS AND LOTS of tack screws.
