If I had known then what I know now---I would have made it bigger! I am adding on to my main coop--it's going from 4 X 8 to 10 X 8. I have had four men here working all day, piles of lumber around, power saws going, hammering, etc. The chickens are all fenced into the garden for the day. They are highly confused, as they can't get to either coop at all. Their food and water and one nest box (a covered kitty litter pan) are in the garden, where they are gathered at the farthest point from the construction. Most had laid their eggs this morning before the activity started, but one pullet actually flew over the fence and went into the coop to lay while the guys were working just outside the door. She did lay, too, and I didn't know she was in there till she sang her egg song loud and clear! I tried to catch her but couldn't, and she finally flew back into the garden. They are removing soffits, etc to add on to the roof line (I'll post pix before and after when they are done). I reminded them that they have to have everything sealed up by nightfall---no missing soffits where raccoons or something could get in! Then they are going to build a roofed run outside my garage coop. I HATE construction! I want to have it done, but I hate it while it is going on! Sort of like remodeling your house. Nice to have done, but no fun while it's going on. I can't explain to the chickens either why their house is torn up.
