    Well today I finally got started on my new coop after work. It's going to be 8x8 with an attached 8x16 run. We plan on having 10 birds. Not sure what the wife ordered but they will be here on the 20th. With no one to help today all I got done was the floor. I will post more pictures as my build progresses

    Yes the person that owned the house before us Had a very small coop and run that he poured a slab for. The slab is 7x10 and my coop is 8x8 so I had to add a few blocks on one side to make up the extra width
