    Well, I've converted a friend of my wife's to the joys of chickens.. [​IMG] We're building her a little coop/tractor she can move around the back yard.. Since it got up to a balmy 52 degrees today I was able to finally start working on it. She's going to have 3 hens and I'm hoping to have everything done in a week so we can deliver it and the 3 pullets next week for her birthday.. I was rather pleased with my efforts today.. got the frame all built, stained & weathersealed. Here's what it looks like so far.. And yes, believe it or not, that is green grass in Idaho!! Our lawns up here get green while it is still cold and snowy, only seems to take a few days of sunshine above freezing and bang.. they're green..

    I've almost got the coop finished... just a couple of little details to finish this week.. the ramp, a shelf for the food and water etc. It's turned out looking pretty good I think...
