I started this coop Memorial Day weekend and worked a few hours at a time as often as I could.. Took till tonight to get it 'done enough' for the chicks to move in full time. I'm not sure the coop will ever get 'done' as I still have plenty I want to do.. PVC feeder and waterer, another couple inches of sand in the run, paint the door, install the dropping board, make a better egg box roof that isn't warped already, exterior landscaping with crushed rock over hardware cloth to prevent tunneling, etc etc... The chicks have been going out in the run part for almost 2 weeks now and coming back in to the kitchen 'mini coop' every night at dusk.. Tonight is the first overnight stay in the coop.. I'll kinda miss the little chirping noises while we are watching TV~ Here's some pics of where we are at~ I took this one earlier in the day after I put 2 of the larger apple tree branches in that I had left over from cutting the tree down to build the run. The chickens jump up and down on this thing all day~ Well thats it.. our first attempt in to the world of chicken housing and care. I can't thank the members of this site enough for all the information and inspiration I've found here. I incorporated lots of ideas (and additions to come) from different setups I found on this site..
