    It's finally done (with the exception of 2 pieces of trim), and we're so proud! I think it came out great for our first stab at one. And the girls love it so far. We'll see how it works going through 4 seasons. It only cost us about 3 times what we budgeted and nearly a divorce! LOL

    Question: Do you think we should insulate the walls? We're in Kentucky.

    The sign says:
    Welcome
    Chicks only. No boys allowed.

    (it's referring to our male dog!)

    Very nice. I'm in New England and my coop is not insulated. This past winter temps went as low as 5 degrees. I had no problems with my birds. Proper ventilation is key to a worry free winter.
