    My husband took over my project (well, kicked me off of even starting it) and finished building the coop and then went out of town. My daughter and I painted--primer only for now and put the floor down. He took his tools, so I couldn't finish the inside. I put up temporary roosts and had to rig some things to shut tighter for now. We'll need extra bars on bottoms of back and side doors to keep them shut tight...the plywood warped a bit. The girls were getting too large for the hutch they were in.

    Things we still need to do: Staple down Linoleum, Roosts, Nestboxes, put up dividers so that I can use more litter.

    I definitely will. I wish I could finish it myself, by dh didn't leave me ANY tools when he left for out of town work. When he gets back we'll have it done pretty quickly!

    Thanks!
