Well, this week i have started doing a lot of work on my chicken coop. With the break in all, I have worked a lot on it. This is what it used to look like before I did anything.

We took the roof off and basically left it with just the bones (framework.) Yesterday this is what it looked like. The only thing I did was extend the wall frames.

I made 6.

Here is the roof. It was sooo heavy for me to lift up on top of this thing! I used the ladder and made a ghetto version of a pulley/crane system!

I am going to line the front (where there is no plywood) with hardware cloth, then I will cut out a little door for the chickens. On the other side, I am going to put a door in for me. I am going to start trying to put in roost tomorrow. Just wanted to show everyone my progress, Hope yall have a happy new years!

How big is it? It appears to be about 4'X4', which in my opinion, is pretty small for ten birds even though they will only use it to lay and roost.
