    My Coop
    I bought this henhouse coop kit from a seller on eBay, and at first it was a nightmare. It was way smaller than I thought and the 100+ pieces were very thin & flimsy. We thought, "this will not last a week". We paid $260 including shipping. We thought we'd been had. But then I had an ingenious idea- why not attach it to the old Milkhouse pen and have one big coop! And so we went to work & did it! It turned out great. The 5 bottles of wood glue was the key to its strength. I did all the painting. My 6 Silkies are lovin' it. What do y'all think? It is my b-day present (5/18). [​IMG]
