Made a HUGE loaf of cheese and onion bread today: Yummy! I can eat it while I celebrate my first step towards chickens! I took a chance and ordered this coop kit. http://www.wholesalechickencoops.com/hss05 chicken coop.html I weighed the pros and cons and if all I have to do is put it together I should be OK. Price was comparable to other kits and since it included a run it meant a lot. Day 1 - it's arrived! Here is my little helper with the coop pieces - stacked in my back office. It's going to be cute! It's pine - so I knew it wasn't going to be all that sturdy. Shipping did bang it up a bit, which I expected. I'm going to have to put a few touch ups with wood glue. The first step will be staining it! It has a light stain on it but I definately want it to have a stronger stain. The base coop area has rubber "feet" - that's good. I'm planning on adding some general predator protection around the base of the run area and probably some insulation on the inside of the roof, at least.
