    Ok, I tried this once and it didn't post, so I will try it again.
    I'm a newbie, so bear with me. I want to share some pictures of the coop we are building, so here are a few of the beginning of the project. I just want to see if this works before I try to put all of them up.
    Here goes!

    Hi, Really cool coop. Love all of the attention to detail. Nice workmanship. Are you gonna have a run area?

    We are really happy with how it is coming along. We plan to make some minor changes though. I am adding hardware cloth over all the chicken wire to make sure it is bomb proof. I don't want to take any chances with my new girls.

    The run is closed in.
    I'm very afraid for the chickens as I know we have many predators around here. I have seen fox, racoon, opossum, and fischer cat. I may let them roam supervised once they know where their home is.

    One more thing to mention....I am only going to have 3 chickens, so they should not feel crowded. The inside of the coop is 5 1/2 ft by 3 1/2 ft. The little run area is 6 ft by 5 1/2 ft. They will have roosts both inside and outside with lots of things to play with. Both the coop and run will have sand.....and of course, everything the little darling's hearts desire. They will be spoiled chickens :)
