    The new coop is underway.... just finished the coop floor. 4' x 8' footprint. Vinyl stickies on the floor for easy cleaning. Five 4" x 4" post raised 18" off the floor. This is my first time ever doing anything like this and it came out pretty **** good if I do say so myself......

    After a few weeks hiatus from vacation & my daughters first bday & my niece's baptism... I worked on the coop again... pix are of my 10' x 10' fenced run. I added chicken wire roughly 18 high all around going about a foot & a half out into the underlaying ground to prevent predators from getting my girls. I also decided to take a bunch of hostas plants I have all over my property & plant it around the fencing. One to hide the chicken wire & two to help with the overall look of it.... hope it came out nice. Tomorrow I get sum lumber & start on studding out the frame. Going with 1 x 3 & studding 12" apart. Like I said before... I've never done anything like this... hope it turns out well
