    OUR FIRST GO AT CHICKENS
    AFTER TALKING ABOUT IT WITH MY WIFE FOR A COUPLE YEARS NOW I DECIDED NOW IS THE TIME TO DO IT. I FOUND THIS SITE AND HAVE BEEN READING LIKE A MADMAN EVER SINCE. I LOOKED AT THE PAGES AND PAGES OF COOP DESIGNS AND GOT BASIC IDEAS IN MY HEAD. BUT I AM NOT ONE TO DRAW OUT PLANS AND MAKE PRELIMINARY SKETCHES. I STARTED BUILDING ABOUT A MONTH AGO AFTER I FOUND OUT THERE WOULD BE A CHICKEN STOCK NEARBY IN LESS THAN TWO WEEKS. SO I INSTANTLY PUT MYSELF UNTIL A STRICT TIMEFRAME. I HAE TWO WEEKS FROM THE TIME I DECIDED TO BUILD UNTIL OUR FIRST CHICKENS..

    WITH A COUPLE DAYS TO SPARE WE FINISHED OUR NEW COOP. IT IS 5 1/2 FOOT LONG AND 4 FOOT WIDE WITH AN 18 X 8 RUN. COMPLETE WITH ELECTRIC AND A COOP DOOR THAT HAS A CABLE PULLEY THAT CONNECTS IT TO OUR DECK SO WE CAN OPEN AND CLOSE IT FROM THERE.
