    I'm finding that when we go places I'm looking at the small building and thinking-"That would make a great chicken coop." I think I'm in trouble but, at least I know I'm in good company here!

    If only spring would arrive so I can get the turkey chicks and the cornish cross chicks. How I would love to have more layers but, I think DH would have me committed. The coop would only hold about 3 more and it would mean finding room and building a new setup-so not going to happen! [​IMG]

    Come on spring so I can order my chicks!

    I found myself doing the same thing. That was, til DH drew up plans, big plans, for a brand new coop this spring! Plenty of room for everything! He is even making me an incubating/brooder room add-on for what will be my first attempts at hatching! Then, I have to choose chicks! I cannot wait!

    Oh yeah. We've scavenged anything that might be useful for the new coop. And I've seen a couple of little buildings, some actual coops, some not that would be perfect. I saw the cutest little bus shelter someone has in their yard for their kids. It would be just perfect!

    You're not alone, I've actually stopped in the middle of the road to pick up a piece of lumber that must of fallen off someone's truck. [​IMG]

    I stopped a couple of weeks ago, someone had lost a huge cooler. It was laying in the ditch in perfect shape with a lid!!

    All I could think about was "homemade bator".

    I'm trying to work on our family tree. It really is hard to do-I keep ending up on BYC! [​IMG]
