    Ok, all thats left to do is add a couple of air vents in the highest part of the coop, and add the chicks. lol, as soon as their old enough.
    Let me know what you think of it, I'll take pics of the inside tomorrow.
    take care,
    Lori

    Super cute! What a space saver and the run around the coop is a fantastic idea.[​IMG] And yes, chickens love fruit..., veggies..., fingers..., toes, just about anything you put within pecking distence.

    I plan to have a empty butter tub near the sink. That way I can put all the left over veggies and fruit in it and toss it out to the chickens every afternoon. Grandma and mom did it with their chickens and those were some happy birds when they saw you coming with that container! [​IMG]
