I am the newbie of all newbies!!! But I am loving this website and all of the information you all have posted here...its like an instant family of feathered friends! Well my husband and I just finished our coop and run! I found a little tykes doll house and painted the front to look more like a little Japanese Temple..I have decided to use sand inside the coop (thanks to the many suggestions I found here). I am trying to dry out the nest box (we worked for two days in the rain building it...rainy rainy here in Oregon). Now I am in the process of making the hanging feed and water feeders. We made the run with free palletts and reclaimed wood...thank goodness for craigslist!
It's my pride and joy..now I am looking for the girls and their Prince Charming to make the coop their home. Can't wait!
