Thank you both for the suggestions on the tomatoe cage and flattening it some. I do not have building skills to speak, that usually falls into my dear BF hands. Anyway, I like this system because it is something that I can do by myself with no help. Having been through two neck fusions and a wrist surgery most recently, I am limited in what I can and should be doing. This is something anyone from all ages and skills can make themselves! I am hoping to have the babies into the coop by Sunday, if the weather cooperates. We are currently a wet muddy mess in Boulder, we are suppose to have a freeze and snow this weekend. I haven't been to work on the small coop as it has been raining, pretty soon someone will have to send us an ark!
