    Back in November, 2007 I joined BYC looking for information on keeping a few hens to supply my family with eggs.

    I just placed an order for a third coop.

    How on earth did this happen?!?!? [​IMG]

    As far as I can see your start of wanting 4 chickens. Then you build a big coop and run which makes them look lonely, so you get a few eggs for a broody hen. Then you find out about different breeds and before you know it you are the mad chicken person with many coops that just have to be filled.

    Quote:That's about right, except....we built the first coop. Then I needed a second. DH had health issues last year and wasn't able to help me build one, so he gave me the shed his harley used to live in; only needed retrofitting on the inside. Now I need a third coop, so I ordered a prefinished one. [​IMG]

    Your first was not built big enough. Your second was not built big enough. Your third (will/will not) be built big enough.

    Imp, your task is to grade her response. A or F?

    I'm actually waiting for a giant shipping crate to become available at work, that will be my 3rd one, too! [​IMG]
    My only thoughts are.... where's the Harley sleeping?

    I blame the predator for taking you broody after I sent you eggs so then you had to hatch the little devils inside. Now they have no feathered mama to protect them from the big bad grown chickens.

    I want to see the coop you ordered!

    Imp has a ruler and is not afraid to use it.
