    Our Chicken Coop, I copied the look of the "The Palace Chicken Coop". I was going with a 8'x12' and made a little drawing[​IMG]

    But ended up going with a 10'x14'. I didn't want to regret building it to small to begin with. We only have (6) now and maybe add (2) more.
    The Girls "relocated" some rocks to help take up some space in the slab.
    Slab ready to be poured


    Walls going up

    I got help Staining.
    Nest box in and a window
    Brown metal roof and hardware cloth on.

    Thanks! All I have left is some finish work, but most of it doesn't have to be done till late fall.
