    This is the first coop (or anything for that matter) I've ever built. Did it solely from pictures from the net. Found out today that the actual instructions were under "coops" on this webpage. Anyway, did this by hand, by myself until painting time, from start to finish. Was not very difficult and is definitely comfortable for the 5, soon to be 8, chickens we have.

    Thank you!
    I put strawberries and mint all around the coop, and the girls ate them all! Lol.
