    I'd love to see how your coop came out. While I haven't been on in quite awhile, Randy stopped by and told me that you had finished it so I will check in for the next several days.

    I built this tractor a few years ago to hold six bantams. Since I no longer have birds I've no need of it. Anyone who wants to come and get it can have it. It would fit in the back of a pickup truck but you need to bring help to load it as I am no longer able. My cell # 517 404 4713
