    After about a month of working on and off on our coop, it finally got moved into the yard yesterday! It was supposed to be a tractor - I got the shape/idea from another poster's photo on the forums - but it ended up being a little too heavy for easy moving. I still plan on moving it around the yard, but we decided to leave off the wheels (since even with wheels, moving it won't be a one-person job), and use a length of pvc to roll it to the next spot. My chicks are still a couple weeks off from being old enough to move into it, but I'm pretty excited to have it done [​IMG]

    I'm always extra impressed by those that finish their coops BEFORE the chickens need them. LOL Very adorable design. I like the extra shade.
