My poor babies no longer have to live in a card board box. My wonderful DH has built me a new coop. Neither of us have ever built anything, but we built, and unbuilt this coop so many times that it was probably the equivalent of building 3 or 4 coops. It took us every bit of 6 weeks; most nights and every weekend. As you can see from the pics, we're not quite done, but our goal was to make the coop secure and habitable, so the chicks could move in. We still have to install the windows and egg door, nesting boxes, roosts, plus other finishing touches. I want to thank everyone on this web site. This web site is great! All the pictures and helpful hints have been invaluable. I especially liked the helpful hint of securing the hardware cloth with screws and washers. I have some closeup shots of that around the upper door. Let me know what you think. Thanks again.
