    ahh..u should post them unfinished lol I did!

    I want to make the sign for it "The Layer Lair" (I want the layers lair but hubby says thats not grammatically correct??)
    & put up the tin chicken signs on the side of the coop this week...

    hubby has to make a door to the run and put the roof panels up next wk..then it'll be done!
    oh wait; then he needs to make screen windows so we can pop out the solid windows..we got them for
    $5 each and $5 for the door/frame! at habitat...

    so we'll use leftover lumber and hardware cloth to make screens we can pop in/out...
    thats the plan anyway lol...

    Wow! Very impressive! You & your hubby did a wonderful job. [​IMG]
    Have any of your girls jumped into the top nest boxes yet? They don't look very high, but they might like a perch in front of the doors? Or not. [​IMG]
    That is a really nice set-up you have for your birds. I can see why they look so happy!
