    So we finally got the coop to the point where we can get the girls out of the garage and the chicks out of the kitchen. It still needs a lot of work but here's the progress so far. Thank you everyone for the wealth of information you provided on this forum. We have, eh, no, experience building anything. Well I guess I build a fort and a dam as a kid but you know how that goes!

    We still lots to do; paint, frame, add nesting boxes, add more windows, finish the run. Well at least they're not inside any more. Not bad for a first time I guess.

    You got a nice little spread goin' there.
    I'd suggest you put a pitch on the roof and get some paint on that exterior.
