    Here is my little coop, made of a window found at the curb, some used plywood, sheeting and timbers. I have a metal gutter free from the church reno's next door. The hinges are from the dollar store. I got some old metal roofing from a neighbour, but went with a bought roll of asphalt shingle instead.
    It houses my 8 rhode island reds and 4 big breasted turkeys (when they aren't sleeping on the fence).

    it's so funny how nice it was to sit and watch chickens do their chicken thing while at work! thanks!
     
  6. That was a GREAT video!
    DH & I watched, and laughed and really enjoyed the ending.

    The coop is cool, but the video was even cooler.
