One minute I am resisting mightily the prospect of building a new chicken house, and the next minute we are discussing what kind of wallpaper to put up in the nesting area. I am not so gullible as to think I could have won that argument, but she turned me so deftly my head is still spinning. Sigh. The new abode is going to be 10' x 10' with double doors on the front (to facilitate future use as a garden shed), a chicken run small sliding door, a window or two, and a separate side entrance. The run will be 26' x' 10' x 6' tall, all chain link with an external gate and top cover screening. The basic construction is going to be a pole building with a framed floor, shed roof, T-111 siding, and electricity. The new chicks hit the street in mid Feb, so I got my work cut out for me.
