    Our sweet silkie ‘whoopy’ has decided that she loves to eat the lead paint all over our 1929 house.

    We have repainted, but she is incredibly determined…

    So, we have decided to build her a little daytime coop/shack to keep her out of trouble.

    Here is what we have so far…

    It still needs doors and a little bit of finishing touches.

    M husband said that it was terribly important that if I was going to post pictures of the progress so far that everyone had to know that he built the entire thing using one battery from his new 32 Volt Dewalt set. As a testament to is endurance and wonderfulness!

    I’m excited because it’s 12 square ft. so, we ‘whoopy’ can have a daytime friend in there!

    I will post new pics of the doors after I get ‘em done tomorrow (the doors are my job).

    So, what you you guys think???

    'Whoopy' is currently sitting on a fake egg in the kitchen, so I am glad that I have a bit of time to finish the doors.
