    they stayed under the coop most of the day to stay out of the heat i think. and let me do my stuff with little fuss.

    WOW, that is a really nice coop. I especially like the sand box and the viewing bench.

    Very nice coop! It looks very secure, too. I am sure they will enjoy the expansion!

    i ran out of the plastic coated poultry wire at this end so i used what i had left of the hardware cloth.

    i wish i could find some extra money somewhere and do the entire thing with this stuff!

    but for now the never to be seen again black coated poultry wire will have to do. got it from Carolyn's uncle, he works at a fencing wholesaler.

    He also supplied me with all of the cedar fencing boards. i shudder in fear thinking about how much this would have cost me if i had to spend real money!
