    So i FINALLY got my father and brother in law to make me a bigger coop. It is going to be 12 x 6 x 7 (in the front) and 8 (in the back). Well they started making it today and we got the floor and two sides framed and then it got to dark. WELL it is supposed to start raining tonight and most of tomorrow. I want my coop finished tomorrow. Ill try and get pics tomorrow of it being build.

    Yesterdays work.

    Of course. Same here. I got the tools, then had to delay for rain. I'm hoping it'll clear for a short time tomorrow so I can go pick up the lumber without it getting soaked.

    rain is much better then 36 inches of snow ! The chicken coop's roof came off and can't move them or fix anything. Have to wait for the snow to melt but 36 inches, I think it will take a long time. So rain,,,there is always worse things. Hope you'll get your coop the way you like it, enjoy

    Ooh, I'd love to see, we recently built the new baby coop, thank goodness there was no rain! [​IMG]

    It's 4' x 8' and made out of all recycled materials.
