    Hi
    After alot of researching and reading and looking at all the great coop's and henhouse's on here. We have started building.
    My Poor hubby is killing his self trying to get done over the holiday. it's 12x16 will have 4 builtin boxes on the left side that will be 4x4 with a run for each box . plus we are going to be fencing in a large part of the field for them to have play time.
    will post more pic's soon.
    So we have spent over $500 and still have alot to get. still have to the pen boards, wire and paint for the henhouse.
    Cant wait until it's finished

    No the floor isnt leaning

    nice and big! And what a lovely backdrop for your chicken coop.

    BTW, it took us *13* weeks to build our coop. Granted we had NO clue what we were doing, but still. Hats off to a man who has goals of finishing a big structure like that in a long weekend.

    In the last 4 years I've gotten my husband to feed my chickens TWICE! The thought of getting him to build me something...well it will never happen. Every time I go out of town I have to call my mother to check on my birds. [​IMG]

    Looks like it will be a nice large coop. Can't wait to see the finished product!
