Hello all. Been creeping for a couple/few years gathering passive information and finally won over my wife to have a coop. Its always been one reason or another not to, including my reasoning, not to start yet... We revisited the situation recently and came to an agreement that if here was no significant money spent then we could move forward. This thread will serve as documentation of our build, cost associated with it and my time for others to understand our process. Please bare with us as we build as we have a busy life (with a current 7 mo. infant) and there will be periods of no progress. I hope you enjoy it. Feel free to comment or ask questions. Please do NOT post your own pictures unless asked or post a link. Id like to make it somewhat easily navigable for others. Ill also try to edit this original post regularly to state specific progress by page of this thread. Last week we took a step in and started the process... Please see the following post for our first plunge into Back Yard Chickens. Enjoy!
