Ok, so after starting with this: I ended up with this: The journey in between has been sooo much work but so much fun! Well except for the 98 degree days trying to build the coop! That was the pits, but that is what you get when you put your chickens before the coop! Anyway...I said I would post pics of the finished coop, so here they are: First is my pop door...I wanted to fix it so I could open it from outside the coop and run, for days I have to work and I'm pushed for time. My first attempt didn't work, well it worked but left the string tied to the latch stretched across the door...not good. So I rethought it and realized if I put the hook part of the latch on the door sill instead of on the door, I would eliminate that problem. So... Here it is unlatched... I drilled holes into the wall to run the string from the door and latch, so I could extend it out to the front of the coop: Here is Rudy checking out the new nest buckets I put in yesterday. I was going to make a wooden frame for them, but still too hot! So for now I just have them side by side between a rock and the wall. I do plan on painting 'Biddy Barn' on the door, but it rained the last 2 days...maybe this weekend. I am sooo glad I am done! Now...when do I get some eggs, girls? They were 16 weeks old yesterday, so maybe in the next month!
