    I finally finished the chicken tractor that has turned into a coop because it's too heavy for me to lift onto the wheels. Or maybe I didn't mount the wheels correctly. Maybe my engineer son-in-law will figure out something else for me. But here are some pics of my coop and flock and my very special brother.

    Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass, it's about learning how to dance in the rain!!

    NICE job. I like it and yes it looks heavy. HEY, if you can't lift it neither can a predator!

    Cute chickens and sweet brother to paint and help. I bet he will enjoy watching them and giving them treats.

    Its a beautiful coop and run and I really like the all-white color scheme. Good for you and Gary. I think you DO have some carpentry skills.
