Finally our Coop, "The Egg Plant" is Finished, except for sand in the run. Every year my husband builds me something for my birthday. Last year I asked for a chicken coop. He told me absolutely NOT. He must have remembered because this year he brought home a poultry catalog and told me to pick out 12 chicks. Everyone got involved and with the help of this site and all of you chicken experts we chose 3 BR, 3BO, 3 SLW & 3EE. They arrived July 7th and DH came home with his truck full of wood and a coop plan he bought on the internet. Coop construction was to begin except after seeing all of your amazing coops I hated the plan he picked. I suggested we just have fun and enjoy the process, no plan would be needed. Needless to say our coop is NOTHING like what I had invisioned. I wanted pretty he wanted function. What we ended up with is a compromise. Thank you to all of you who posted your coops. They were my inspiration!
