Old nest boxes out of a old coop that we burned last year Finally moved them in today. Still some exterior finishing to do and minor things to add but it is now in use. Got the roof on friday after 33 hours of working Saturday was fence day. I ventured to TSC for more feed and to check their prices on fence and I went to home depot and picked up 5'x50' 2x4" wire for $45. They are secured to metal panels from our old cows. My makeshift gate to get into the run Roosts all painted up Nesting boxes painted as well. All that is left is to get more hardwire cloth to run on the bottom of the wire for the run and some battons for the outside. last two walls are up. I get some ice and water shield for the roof tomorrow so I should be just about done by the end of the week. Almost done.... Everyday I have had off in the past month has seemed to rain. Ugh weather I framed out the floor on Saturday and its approx 6'x8' it was built to suit the floor pieces. All wood is from our stock pile of home made boards The floor is 4 pieces of wood that came with the pallets for the bonfire. They are 2 inches thick and in very great shape for free wood. All concrete blocks were from around the farm I have multiple windows around and a door that has been in a basement at my grandfathers for quite a few years. Some windows are off an old van that got scrapped for the metal. I have it raised off the ground due to the spring water build up. Plan on putting some wire cloth around the bottom for the chickens to go under in the hot summer sun. The area was picked for winter access, easy electricity, shade in the summer, and sun in the winter. All water runs away from the coop area it just stays a little wet after long periods of rain and the spring melt down. They will have their own run fully enclosed and evil dog proof for when I am at work. They will also have a nice access door for when I let them free range when I am home. I am so excited that I got this far and with the snow today I didn't think I was going to get the base down. Nothing is secured yet because I have to pick up the hard wire cloth before I secure the floor down to the frame. I just had to share Hope you enjoy my adventure as much as I am. My obsession is taking form. Ohh BTW I want to paint it John Deere colors I will post more Pics along the way.
