    So we moved the girls out into the coop today and they love it! They will be 4 wks on Mon. Anyways a little about the coop, it is double walled and double flooring with insulation in walls, ceiling and floor. So they will be nice and warm in the winter. There are 4 windows with wire on the outside so that they can be opened in the summer for ventilation and open in the winter for ventilation. My dad wanted it completly predetor proof so hopefully don't want anything to happen to our girls! We will hopefully get the run on soon. there will be two, but only one for now due to money. And I still need to clear some space XD And have to cut out the doors for the chickens! But all in all it is coming along nicely! Not sure what else to add so onto the pics XD

    Lovely coop but I'm worried about the clip lights without any back-up wiring or chain to keep them from being bumped off and starting your shavings on fire! Please consider chaining those lamps! I've read way to many horror stories about coop fires on this site!!
