    Here is the story of how I roped my husband into getting me chickens. I
    was born in Montana, and I suppose ranching and farming are in my blood.
    But I married a boy from New York, and we now live in a subdivision in
    North Carolina that's not really a large livestock kinda place. So, after
    months of my begging and pleading, he finally decided that a few chickens
    couldn't be THAT much trouble! Especially since our good friend, who is a
    carpenter by trade, offered to donate a bunch of scrap materials. So began
    our little project. We broke ground in early spring, and finished in late
    October, $500 buckaroos later! So much for easy - or cheap! But now that
    it's all done, we are really enjoying our 3 sweet little hens and
    beautiful brown eggs every morning. And heck, maybe next year i'll
    convince him into letting me have a little brown jersey cow :)

    I love this design. It looks like I have to build a separate coop for my Silkies. They would rather sleep on the back steps than share any of the coops with the larger birds. One question though. Do you not need anything on the ground to protect from digging predators? Or is that only an issue in the Rain Forest Jungle of Costa Rica where I live?
