    The chicks arrived today (they were supposed to be shipped last week), and all 16 doing well so far. I need to update my BYC page for the ongoing story of the coop, and plan to soon. This has been a mostly Girlpower project by me (my first), however hubby has been helpful during certain tricky parts such as hanging the doors and tinning the roof. He is also going to make the coop portable by attaching some vintage iron wheels. More to come soon. In the meantime here are a few pics for today, and you can check out the blog (below) for more if you like.

    Thanks! And I should clarify again - forgot to add it here. I plan to keep alllll the 16 chickens, so this is only their starter/brooder coop. however, with plans to make it mobile, it should come in handy as a portable coop w/ future movable run also. I sure have big plans.. LOL.. now to find more hours in the day!! I need to start that big coop now to get it finished in time [​IMG]
