We have been planning our coop for months now and are still not ready to lift a hammer (weather and detailed plans not done). I love how you have documented (pictures and script) the beginning of your coop. Such detail. I am awaiting your next post with great anticipation.
The photo of the chicks was taken about an hour after I'd gotten them home. I'd read that there was a (slight) possibility of the chicks drowning in the water dish, hence the rocks. Once the chicks were here and I saw the relative size of their heads vs the water dish, I realized it was a pretty remote possibility and removed the rocks when I changed the water later that day.
