    And you plan to have how many chickens ? Just wondering if you know how addictive these critters are. You are going to need a lot more of these coops before you know it. Trust me, I know from experience. Good luck, and have fun!

    Quote:HAHAHA... well, it's 5' x 5' and the run will be 10x10 or so... PLUS.. they get to free range. I cannot have more than 8-12 until we get a bigger property. My husband might leave me [​IMG]

    LOL...I love your "signature" ....."one husband I am pretty sure thinks I am crazy" My husband grew up in the city with NO animals (So sad) and I grew up in the country with a mini farm (horses, dogs, a goat, bunnies, cats, a turtle, guinea pigs, chickens...) We met in grad school and I had two cats...and then the fun began....a dog..a couple years later another dog....then our first child...our second child....our third child....then 1 bunny....then 2 bunnies.....then 3 bunnies.....then 4 bunnies....then 5 bunnies....several rats along the way (we currently have 3) our fourth child...then almost 2 years ago we inherited my mother's horse....5 weeks ago we got a variety of straight run chickens (we now have a pretty good idea who we can keep and who we have to rehome) and my 11 yr old just got a baby goat about 3 weeks ago who is now 3 months old. Talk about crazy....my husband KNOWS I am crazy...crazy about animals! Enjoy your critters and your beautiful new coop! Love the picture of your daughter painting the coop with one of the biggest smiles ever!!!!!

    Quote:LOL. Yes that sounds like me! I am a chemistry teacher and have always loved animals. Growing up we had a little of everything. When hubby and I met I had a dog and a cat. We've had rats, mice, fish and a rabbit but currently have the critters listed in the signature [​IMG]

    He wasn't really consulted about the chickens too much [​IMG] long story there but I got him to be ok with the promise we could eventually sell some eggs to pay feed bills [​IMG]

    He did a great job with this coop! We used a lot of recycled wood but he constructed it basically with little help. I told him what I wanted and he delivered ... With some help from my brother in law and my self

    I still have a bit of decorative flair to add to to coop outside and roosts inside. Then, there's the run.. Ehh it'll work out [​IMG]
