    My husband made me another coop. It is almost an exact replica if the one he made last year when I first got chickens. Well I just got a flock of silkies, so they needed their own coop away from the big girls.

    Hauled into place and construction continues underneath the deck. Perfect coop spot, no hot sun, no rain, no snow!
