    Hey Everyone!

    We are about to start construction on our chicken coop. Stop by my page and watch the progress. I will be working on it over the next 8 weeks so any suggestions anyone might have along the way would be appreciated.

    Here are the basics. It is going to be a heavy chicken tractor, 8' X 8', high pitch roof, 6' side walls. It will hold about 8 or 10 hens. The one thing I have to have is a VSBi automatic door. Those look very cool!

    Thanks!

    Free lumber is always great. I'll be checking in to see your progress.

    Hey Y'all,

    I've got some updated pics on my page. You have to check out the antique chick brooder I found in my friends pasture. Pretty cool. Chicks arrive in about 10 days!
