    hello. im am 2 weeks in to owning 4 hens and a cockerel. there great fun to watch. I'm 30 years old with a 7 year old son. We also have a 2 year old putbull.who is almost used to the new chickens. i'm am also planing to make my own coop in the next few weeks so they have some more room.

    Greetings, legohead1, and [​IMG]! Pleased you joined us! I love that coop - go for it! Question though: I didn't read the full description - what keeps it from leaking with a garden on the roof? Plus the weight. Best of luck and enjoy your birds!

    i had a idea of truck curtaining to seal it up with some good folds at the corners.
