    We were going to fix up the other old hen house (12' x 16'), just like we did the smaller one (8' x 16'). Well, thats out!
    We started taking the sides off so we could replace the walls and floor. As you can see, the frame is in really bad shape, and it's lopsided from sinking at one end.
    So we decided we would have to tear the whole thing down and build a new one.[​IMG]
    My husband just looked at me and ask "what did I do to make you mad at me, this will take me most of the summer" [​IMG]

    Here is the coop we are taking down. (The young uns may be in the barn for a while)

    Doesn't look like there is any thing to save. You'll be glad you started fresh.
