    A couple months ago my Grandpa passed, and since then my Grandma has been dealing with it by keeping herself busy. Since she really liked my chickens, especially the roosters. So I figured I would build her a coop and get her a few chickens of her own, she knows I am building her one I just hope she likes it.. Everything except the 2x4's are reclaimed wood from other projects around the house. Here is what I have so far:

    Will post more pics hen done. I hope I can find some people to help me move it when finished because it is not very light.

    It looks good. It looks like a miniature barn. You should paint it barn red.

    That is nice of you to build a chicken coop for your grandmother. What type of chickens are you going to give her with the coop?
