    Amory, So Tupelo.
    Here's my first question,
    I told the wife about this site and told her to look at the coops here. then I got, "I saw these cute coops kits on the Walmart site. I just want a little one". I don't do little. Do it right or don't do it. The one item I keep seeing is "Stand Up" as in Walk in coops that you don't bend over like Quasimodo. I have all the skills to build ours. So, Whats any Ideas?
