    Here are some pics of the new coop. I drew up an idea and sent it to my husband and I was so thrilled to see it come to life. We started with a box and some trusses, through on some legs and added amenities, (nesting box, ramp, feeder, vents under the eaves). We're putting a metal roof and siding on it tonight. It will also have a detachable 6 ft. run in front and handles on the sides to move the entire hutch around the yard. I think Sgt. Pepper and his ladies, Yoko and Ono will love it: [​IMG]

    Quote:LOL! I feel your pain and mine haven't even hatched yet. I know they're going to grow super quick and outgrow that brooder we built in the basement. [​IMG]

    wow I am super impressed. There are such great carpenters on here and you are one of them!
    I LOVE the interior design of the coup and can't wait to see what kind of wrapping paper you put on this box to dress it up.
