OK..........I build a nice tractor ( 4x8 with a condo top). I scrounge up most of the lumber from the pile that was left over from building our house. I use the metal roofing that was left over from the carport I added on. I fill it with nice banties. I want some standards, so I build a small tractor (3x5) to actually use as a brooder/grow up deal, and I put 5 RIRs in it. Now they are 4 weeks old and in a week or so will need more room. So, I must build another tractor, or just go ahead and build the dream coop. ( big nice coop that I can stand up in, with two sides for different breeds, and two runs) I have no lumber left from the pile. I have no roofing left either. ANd now I'm about to put some eggs in the incubator I bought for 15 dollars. So.........I leave the choice to my fellow BYCers. 1. Scrounge and build a tractor ( knowing that in a month or so I will have to build another tractor for the birds in the bator) 2. Go ahead and build the dream coop and twin runs.
