    We started our first coop yesterday, so far it looks great! Hubby decided it needed to be a family project so we all helped and all had fun doing it, I can't believe how much we got done in one day!!! [​IMG]

    We plan on putting 1/2in chicken wire around the top so there is a lot of air flow b/c it stays hot here year round, we are also going to add more support to the legs and put a few coats of sealent over it, we didn't have a huge budget for this so our totalt cost came around to about $92 [​IMG]

    I will continue to post pics of our progress!

    We haven't decided on a name yet...
