    About 100 blisters/calluses and $1400 later, our coop is ready! I don't want to even LOOK at another roll of wire for...well...for a LONG time. My five chicks come THIS week (I'm so excited!!), so it'll be a few weeks before they get to enjoy thier new "home."


    The run took FOREVER to build...


    The inside...before chickens, which is why there's not bedding down.

    Ladder to their roost...

    4 more days till my babies arrive!!! [​IMG]

    That is for FIVE chickies? Just five?

    Gives new meaning to the word, "McMansion."

    Oh, wait! You're already aware that you are totally hooked, and you're embracing your addiction in advance! THAT's what I call planning!

    Whoa! That sucker is huge!!!!!!! I guess you've got plenty of room to expand. That's actually a really smart idea.

    Quote:The run is 16 x 36. We made it big hoping to preserve some grass in it (don't laugh...it's possible!). And possumqueen...lol...I don't usually have that much foresight. I'm REALLY hoping to keep it at five...lol...but you never know where or when chicken fever might strike... There is room to expand down another 16 feet, but I don't even want to think about that right now...
