Good morning y'all... About 2 months ago, my wife and I received a gift of about a 1/2 dozen fresh eggs. She made the comment "Wouldn't it be nice to have our own fresh eggs" and here we go. I started reading this forum every day and made a mental note of the ideas and/or suggestions that I liked and that I thought would fit our situation for where we live, etc. I was going to wait to post pics until my project is done but decided this morning to post pictures as the project progresses for a couple of reasons. #1...I'm a far cry from being an experienced carpenter. I had no plans when we started, just an "idea" in my head. My son kept asking questions like "What are we going to do here?" My answer was usually "Don't know, just keep building and I'm sure something will reveal itself". My point is, if I can build a coop, anyone can. Reason #2....I'm hoping that if anyone sees any obvious mistakes, they'll give me a heads up and tell me what to correct. So here we go, this thread will be picture heavy because I don't really know all of the correct chicken terminology to explain what I'm doing. I've put my comments on my photos so y'all will follow my thought process...good luck, no one else ever has. This project has gotten out of hand with a much bigger structure than I pictured, my wife has taken to calling it the "Coop DeVille". Thanks for your patience and your advice will be appreciated!!!
