In The Beginning
Our sons gifted class at school was hatching chickens. My wife has always wanted them so now seemed like the perfect time to do it.
Taking the advice from another BYC member, I started checking Craig's List for free lumber for the coop and the run. This is what we were able to get for free.
This stash here is going to help with a small deck in the back. I really appreciate the Craigslist advice, that was a huge help with cost and now we'll have a chicken coop, the run and a deck to sit out on and watch 'em.
Here is the space we had to work with in our back yard.
