    My husband and I finally got the coop framed out today! Next weekend we will be sheeting it. I am so happy it is finally coming together. I am thinking the run is by far going to be the easiest, compared to the coop itself. My chicks are only a week old but I won't be able to relax until that darned coop is done![​IMG]

    I thought the run would be easier too. We have a lot of preditors here so by the time i made the run predator proof it turned into more work and money than the coop. I tend to over do things so hopefully you won't have as much in your as i do. Good Luck and post pics.

    I will definitely be posting some pics soon. I was so preoccupied today that I didn't even think about it.[​IMG]

    i took advice from patandchickens about ventilation, my coop dosen't smell ever and no flies either. Leaving with a horse pasture for a backyard, says something.

    We covered all the windows and openings of the old gazebo with wire and covered with wood shavings. And there you have it, our chicken coop!
