    I have been to a barn raising party before, does it have a poultry equivalent? As one who is always in the middle of working on a coop, the idea of a get together to make sure it happens in a timely manner (with accompanying networking) seems a good idea. Is there a precedent?

    Why do you need a precedent?

    Just get your friends together and build everyone a coop.

    I tried to have a coop raising party but everyone thought I was joking, or something...[​IMG]
    Last time the band came I had them help move the duck enclosure. Maybe that is why we never have band practice at my house anymore. [​IMG]

    Musicians, they'll do anything for a free meal, except actual work. [​IMG]
