    Hi all. I'm new here but, I've been stalking for several weeks. I came across this site by accident and have been hooked every day. I do not have chickens yet, can't get the hubby on board. Even though he knows that I have been wanting them for years. I have spent over a week checking out all of the coop designs posted and haven't even seen all of them yet. I am so inspired by all of them. My plan is to build my own coop from materials found around our property (my husband is a hoarder of scrap materials LOL). He commented one night while I was looking through all of the coops that he is "not building one". He didn't say I couldn't. So that is my story for now. Hope to learn alot from everyone and get my chickens by summer :)

    Welcome! I am new as well and just posted my intro.... We did make a coop out of scraps on our farm, my husband also said... I'm not building one, well it took me 2-3 months to get him to change his mind, really the kids did it since we made it a "school" project I don't mind guilting him to get what we need, and ill tell you it has changed our lives! We love having our chickens, everyone is involved and we have never eaten better eggs, also the kids eat more fruits and veggies, knowing we need to use a lot in order to get good scraps for the girls.... It's working well for the whole family! Good luck to you, I hope you can find a way to get him on board soon, you will regret not starting sooner b/c it is sooo rewarding!
