    Hey all, for those that asked to keep the pics coming here are the latest. Finally got back from Georgia on recent trip helping to build an animal shelter called "Build an Ark" with about 500 volunteers from around U.S. Great trip. Rented trencher Sat. morning and got down to running trench for water and power form house to coop. Here is result.

    Finished product. Trench done. 1'' water line run today, covered, spread gravel in covered run area....installed sink, hose and tied water into chicken nipples. Love the automation and ease of clean up by having everything right outside of coop.
