Building a chicken coop has not been easy. Certainly more time, money and effort than I ever gave it credit. Hauling the lumber, sinking posts, concrete, heavy wire.....we still aren't done! LOL! the "chicks" now 15 weeks old are still living in old cupboards, which they don't actually seem to mind. Here's the "roof" of our coop (6 sheets of Heavy flippin plywood) attached to a 14' X 40' fully enclosed run. Of course, I wasnt even planning the "coop" addition but the angle of the lumber we were installing looked like it would be so easy to turn into a shed style roof, so off to home depot we went, the full weekend later, we don't have the "run" finished and haven't finished the new "addition"!!! jeesh Chickens are still running amok......the cost is just eye popping Poor hubby, I just brought home some chicks one day and he inherited major construction project! Life is good!
