    I built one coop for my hubby already this year and put my foot down hard about building another one out of my pocket. I gave him a shopping list that covered everything but the hinges with no dipping into my stored lumber. He read it and asked a few questions then said OK. I'll believe it when I see his truck full of plywood and fencing.

    Oh and he's doing all the tranching for puttign in the buried wire for the run since it will be dug in July heat rather than June cool like the last one.

    I don't mind building, but he's paying and doing all the run fence. [​IMG]
