    If I had built it onsite it may have been easier. I built it on the flat to make sure it was racked and square. Than moved it with the skidloader. Building the production coup onsite. It's taller and has a 10 hole nesting box in it with plenty of roost space. It's gonna be on the backside of that one. (can see the lumber leaning against the wall in the back of the picture) I found a wooden screen door with plexiglass inserts in a yard on my way back from Lebanon with a FREE sign on it. PERFECT walk in door for the coup! (just have to take the pigs off of it and replace with appropriate animal signage)

    Bigger Brooder CHECK!!! with some supervision our daughter Summer 12 and little guy Lucas 5 made it, (mom had to do the cutting of course)
    But they did awesome, and actually had a great time building it, they wanted to color the brooder with markers, they only have the top finished,
    I said no when they went to start coloring the inside, LOL..... Dont want those peeps drunk on fumes! ITS HUGE 4.5' x 3'

    I HATE the USPS!!! I have nooooo luck!

    2 are totally smashed, 1 is cracked in half, and 4 have hairline cracks on the ends!!!
    I put some wax on them to salvage and at least see if that works, but they are pretty bad.

    Candle showed 6 with rolling air cells : ( I swear its one of the main USPS stations close by that it happens at!!

    They were packaged well! But now the box is a mess, how in the world did the runny escape her packaging I have no clue, but it was sticky thats for sure!

    Do they treat chicks as roughly, or is it different because they are living, chirping animals?
    I know I would not trust my P.O. with eggs. I don't even trust them with the mail!

    I am so sorry Sally! Good luck with the ones that remain. I hate shipping in eggs to, but there are just so many cool breeds out there. I can't resist!

    [​IMG] To the all coops and brooders. They are all awesome!
