    I just realized I didn't put up pics of the coop and run we built this spring. So without further adooooo.

    At an angle

    Hubby had to name it

    Nest boxes before the hay went in

    Ta Dah!!!!! Yep I waited 5 years to get it and it was worth it!

    Since we have dogs I laid an apron of the left over fencing around the perimeter and covered it with large rocks. It has worked out very well. My hound couldn't care less. My pointer at first would run out to show me that we had chickens. I broke her of that. Now she walks me out to the run every time I go out and leaves when I tell her to. I was worried about the dogs but have had no problems with them at all.

    I very much love the old-school barn look of the coop. Red and white wood barns are my favorite.
