    [FONT=times new roman,times]Welcome to the Coop Library![/FONT]​
    [FONT=times new roman,times]We decided early on that chickens, especially Literary Ladies and Bookish Boys, deserve adventures and grass- two things they just can’t get stuck in a stationary coop. To that end, we designed a traveling home for these oh-so-special birds. So now, when the chickies eat all the grass in their yard, we simply hook the Coop Library up to the truck and move it on to some new, fresh grass- and fresh ADVENTURE![/FONT]

    The plan: Create a movable home for the chickens, complete with a yard, 2 sections, and all the other goodies.
    The materials: Luckily for us, my grandfather never let’s anyone get rid of anything and it finally came in handy! The only thing that needed to be purchased for the ENTIRE coop was a bag of metal roofing screws.
