    I'll bet that a lot of you were disappointed to see that this is about a chicken coop instead of a handy dandy building plan for getting rid of the ex-wife. I've been divorced from my sons mother for 35 years and she still gives me grieve when she gets the chance, but that's another story.
    Several weeks ago my oldest son sent me a Craig's List link for a chicken coop he was considering buying for his mother and he wanted my opinion. Truth be known I think his plan was exactly what happened. "Joe that is too much money for a piece of junk, I'll build one for you," I hear myself saying. Me and my big mouth. Actually I didn't build it for her but for my sons. Hopefully when they slam the lid on me my sons will remember that Dad always tried to do the right thing.
    The coop is for a few bantams and is 2' wide and 4' long. I will be taking it to Missouri next week and then he, Scott and I will build a run and attach the coop to it.

    You can build one for me and I won't even give you grief for one year.

    But really, its beautiful.
