    LOVE it! I'm glad to hear the boys have another set to play on, though. [​IMG] I eye my daughters' metal swingset every day thinking it i would make a good run frame!

    Why did the chicken cross the swingset?

    ..........to get to the other slide!

    What a great idea, and job!! I want to know what kinds of chickens your boys are holding, the white one looks like a White Leghorn, but the three I have that look exactly like that are all crowing!! What is the other one?

    Thanks Everyone! @Cindy, you are right about the leghorn...she is a great layer too. The other one in the picture is a Light Brahma. We have a pair of them. They are so docile and soft. They aren't laying yet but probably in a month or so. They are brown egg layers and are suppose to be good layers in the winter.
    @Sunflowerenvy - Thanks for the tip, I hadn't ever heard of hardwire cloth but after looking it up it seems like a great idea. I will definitely modify the coop and replace the chicken wire. I got such great ideas off of these message boards and website, I am convinced that chicken people are some of the most creative around.
