    So as to not clutter up the post I'll just link you all the page I have started on here and show you the progress of my build. If only the weather had been nicer yesterday i would have gotten further along.

    It's a GREAT start.

    That's looking good so far, and I feel you when you say the weather, it is driving me crazy, all my business is depending on the forcast and on dry weather, and I tell you what every time it stop raining, the ground does not have enough time to dry up, and when it is dry then the next day start all over again, but I am ok with that, because that's what God wants.

    Good luck on your coop and keep us posted.

    Major update. the coop is at 99% completion. All that's really left to do is build a ramp going in the coop.
