    How fun for you. Coop building is not that hard. To do it perfectly is hard, but I just sort of started out and kept going. Asked questions of people who had construction experience. I learned a lot and would defintely do it differently next time but hey, the chickens don't care.

    There is a section on this site (I think you can get to it from the main page) that shows pictures of other people's coops. You can get some great ideas from there. Some people even posted their plans so you can copy it. That is where I had DH look for ideas on our coop.
    It took us a weekend to do ours, but we're sort of...ahem... picky. [​IMG]

    So glad you picked up the little fluffybutts...
    I wouldn't worry about the coop for a few weeks either. They'll need the heat until they feather out.
