Hello all, I live in Atascadero, California. It is on the central coast right between LA and San Francisco. I am expecting my 5 pullets in 6 days, a lovely gift from a good friend that ended up with a few too many for her place. It is down to the wire in getting the coop and run ready for the girls. I have always been pretty handy so rather than buying a coop I figured I would save some money and build it from the ground up by myself. Boy was I wrong!! Think I am almost $1000 in but am so happy with it and proud of myself for the accomplishment. A couple pics of the coop so far... Another couple days to finish up the roosts, feeders and waterer (thanks to great BYC DIY ideas) and we are ready for them!
