    After having 4 chickens for 2 years, I have gotten bitten by the chicken bug. I am hook. They are so much fun. We are adding 8 more chicks to our flock so therefore we need a bigger hen house. We are currently in the process of build a 8x10 coop and I just wanted to share the journey.

    Here is the front of the coop but we had to wrap it and wait for the rain to pass. Part of living on the Oregon coast. We plan on attaching to the exciting run and leaving the smaller coop right where it is.
