I've been working on getting materials for the coop/run I'm planning on starting tomorrow. This morning my daughter and I visited a local salvage store (that benefits Easter Seals) to see what we could find - it was awesome! Found a 100 yr old farmhouse screen door for $15 - it even already has the 1/2 " hardware cloth in it! Just needs to be cleaned, sanded and painted and voila! A door for the run. I also found a small window for the coop from the same farmhouse for $5. I love getting a great deal, owning a small piece of history, supporting a worthy cause, having a fun morning with my 13 yr old dd, AND rescuing something from our landfill... and all for only $20. On the downside, I also made a trip to Lowe's to get the rest of what I needed... and I say "need" loosely!! How did the under $100 coop I promised my husband I'd make (before the chicks arrived!) turn into a $400+ project?! I love those 5 fuzzy lil goofballs!
