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.

how are you going to do that?!

OK Here we go . .
First ya gotta get Grandpa's chains around


Then ya gotta go get Grandpa's tractor


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



Then you pull it across the yard





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



And pack them down nice and tight



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 !



And this is the view of my chicken house from my kitchen window !! yeah !!



And after all the work, Grandpa had to take his helpers on a cruise around the yard !!

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