    Yeah, try reading the Silkies thread sometime - about 5,000 pages of reading and photos - but I learned a lot on there about more than just Silkies.

  6. Thanks! The inside coop is the premade one we had, and we added a larger than the original room to it's back, and then went around it with the fencing. Roof needs to go on yet. Unfortunately we had to re-staple (with hammer in 1 1/2 in fence staples) the ENTIRE THING today. Live and learn. Regular staples are CRUD. I didn't know. I hope to add the roofing tomorrow (same fence material) and then steel roofing material from our house (leftover) on top of the run over the house section/nest boxes only (for snow protection).

    I have put these pictures up before, but for anybody that was curious here is the whole shebang...
    I need to re do the roosts. I didn't know they were supposed to be 2 x 4's the flat way. We have some scraps, shouldn't be too hard.

    Sorry, wasn't meant personal... was just stating one/the (obvious?) reason for repeats... this IS a long thread, but there are those much, much longer. You might could read it all in TWO days [​IMG]

    Here is our first coop. Built by my husband. Just need to add a roost, finish nesting boxes and possibly surround with pavers.

    That will make the natives here happy.

    Not that my tractor isn't swaddled in a protective layer of hardware cloth and tin.
     
  10. Lol. [​IMG]No offense taken. I've seen some long threads on various forums, but I think this one takes the cake. [​IMG]
