    I am SOO happy with my coop! And my FIL is a BLESSING! My hubby works all day so he would have only been able to work on it pretty much on weekend but my FIL has been out there NON STOP every single day for 8 hours a day for almost two weeks now! He is just wonderful! Here are some pics from start to almost finished!

    The pink is where the little window will go...it will open and have a heavy duty screen on it. And the nesting boxes are on the right. The only thing my FIL didn't realize was that the roosts should be big side up on the 2x4 so we will switch those later. Otherwise we are SO close to done...painting will be our last project! There are still a little left, like putting in the window and finishing touches.

    Very nice! I can't wait until we move and can build a nice big new coop. For now I'll just have to fix mine up and slap some paint on it.

    It is conduit we got at Menards and we buried the cable about 12 inches I think. I will have to ask but I'm sure it's about that. It's underground cable from Menards also.​
