My Coop
Here is the 12' x 16' coop this ol' lady has been building. DH works out of town, but did get to help frame it, and 2 sons put the roof layment and tin roofing on. It has been many hours of fun, and MY THUMBS ARE VERY SORE, from hitting them with the hammer! There are lots of things I should have done differently, but .... didn't. I used hardwood on the walls, thinking it would wipe off easier (and was cheaper than all the paint I used on the floor!). Still much to do. No nests or droppings board yet. My 44 chicks are 5 weeks old now. This next week will be putting up fencing, and the run! Here are my pictures:

Looks good Kathy. Nice job!! Oh by the way.....the Bluffs rock!!
I use to walk for miles on them through the woods down by "G-town". I really miss them, it's beautiful country in that area of IA, same holds true about MV too.

Your coop is adorable! Good for you! The little chicks look so happy in it! You should be really proud of yourself! Enjoy!

I love your storage cabinet with pine shavings, feed, etc neatly locked up.
It is gorgeous! Are you sure about those paint colors though? The structure is great!

I like it!
Your storage area looks like our "brooder closet," a seperation area for broodies & their chicks. Maybe next year...
