Are those metal nesting boxes I see? Great job on the coop. Oh yea, please move those tractor tires or lay them down, thank you.

Oh I wish I had a bobcat--my little 3x4 is ready to go to it's spot, but I'll have to wait until I can get 4 able bodied men over to move it out of the garage. Love the color--yellow is such a happy color.

First ya gotta get Grandpa's chains around

Then ya gotta go get Grandpa's tractor
100_9565.jpg


And bring it up

Then you gotta hook up the chains to the chicken coop and start pulling slowly while keeping an eye on what you are pulling

100_9571.jpg


Then you pull it across the yard

Then you have to lay pavers for the sleds to slid and sit on

100_9580.jpg


And pack them down nice and tight

100_9581.jpg


Then you have to measure, carefully

Then you have to wait until Grandpa brings the Bobcat around ( My neglected garden is a parking lot right now )

Then slowly push it backwards into the hole !

Even my entry door will be out of the weather !

What great family memories for the kids. You have such good help. I love the happy yellow color of the coop, too. Good job.
