    Finally starting to build our first real coop. Current coop is a converted outhouse that is falling out around our ears. Going to try and make a 4x8 coop area with an additional removable 4x8 run. This is also going to be a tractor most likely to be moved with a mower but we will see how heavy it winds up being. Bought the lumber to start framing and have the floor. We are getting started tomorrow once we get the wheels. I will be adding pictures as we go. Super excited we are finally working on it!

    Fun, isn't it. The hardest part is figuring out when you've gone too far. I stopped before I added cable TV and a jacuzzi.
