    Here is our project, we have little experience in building, all of it was a learning experience. After a couple failed attempts at our previous chicken coops, we figured we may as well go all out this time. We are planning to house twenty hens here, and we aren't done with the watering system or electrical yet, and we are 5 weekends in. Thanks for checking us out, we call it the Cluckingham Palace!
