    When we decided to get chickens, I had the perfect solution with a dog kennel to house them while I build a new coop. Of course, my idea of a coop consisted of a simple lean to with chicken wire and a tarred roof. Nothing major nothing minor! And then my wife gets involved: "It must be pretty and cute..." BAH!!!!!

    Keep in mind I am not a contractor nor am I a carpenter. But I got 'er dunn! LOL

    Nesting box installed. I decided to buy one from our local feed
    store rather than try building one.
