    My Dad wanted a new coop and his health is not the greatest. He has the heart but his body just want cooperate. He loves animals and chickens are easy enough for him to take care of on his own. He just needed a hand with the coop. I built this for him as a Fathers Day Gift this past weekend and although his face may not show much emotion he is very pleased and happy to have a new place for his chickens.

    I used an old awning frame to help make a completely enclosed run so he will not have to worry about predators. Happy early Fathers Day to my Dad and to all the Dads in BYC Land.
