    The coop is finally done it only took me 6 weeks to complete.[​IMG] Through snow ,rain and 80 degree weather all in the span of 6 weeks. (Only in New England).

    This was the begining of construction back in March.

    Thank you zippychickens,
    The kids like it as much as the chickens.
    The coop is the talk around town. People ask me if it a summer house or something. When I tell them it is for chickens they think I'm crazy.

    Wow, looks great!

    I can't believe you went to all that trouble to dig down into the snow to start building. I'm taking a moment to reflect on how thankful I am to not live in snow. [​IMG]

    Nice looking coop there!

    It's great to see your kids involved in the project. You're giving them an experience that will help shape their outlook for the rest of their lives.

    Very nice Ed, my neighbors keep trying to figure out why there is an old goat house in the yard. are you going to add a run or are they going to free range?
