    My Coop
    My kids think the coop is their new playhouse. Found a plastic playhouse on CL for free the other week and today buried an old plastic pool and put sand in it for the kids. I will cover it with a tarp till I get a lid made. Figured I had to do something as the chickens will be moving into the coop in a couple of weeks and I dont really want my toddlers digging in the sand in the coop and run with poop on it. They are loving having chickens which are the first pets we've ever had.
