    Believe it or not, we got this cute little coop on ebay! It cost about $100. We're seeing it as a starter coop, to house the girls until we construct something more substantial. But it was a snap to assemble. We're adding some modifications, as it didn't come with a perch, nest box, or adequate hardware cloth. But it's coming along and will likely be finished tomorrow.

    Got the coop's web page set up too!

    No chickens yet. We plan to rescue from our local SPCA (Nevins Farm). Probably next weekend we'll pick up the girlies and bring them home. I'm so excited!

    What do you think?

    Wow. Great find! did you have to have it shipped? That would probably make it alot more expensive. It looks great! [​IMG]

    Luckily they have a warehouse in Boston, so I didn't have to pay shipping. Woo Hoo!
