    We are building a temporary coop!
    We are building a temporary coop to house fifteen hens and two roosters. We have a 6' x 8' playhouse that never gets used. We are going to enclose it, build roosts and nesting boxes, and there we have it! A temporary coop!

    We are going to be building a permanent coop in a month or so. Saving up money to make it "better!"

    The Beginning!

    We are going to rip of the old floor and walls.

    Day 1:

    We ripped up the floor, took down what walls it had.

    I will keep yall updated!

    Next step is build nesting boxes!
