    The bad news:
    Time to get to work and put the thing together.
    I got ALOT of nice pallets from work and an old small chicken shack from a friend who moved out of state.
    Now it just has to all be torn apart and re-assembled. Easier said than done. Oh well! Guess I know what we will be working on for the next few weeks.
    Oh and we got this today too. [​IMG] Should help to stop lining the pockets of Big Oil. [​IMG]

    Cool! You can make an awesome coop with all of those. I was all jealous at first thinking "Gee, I wish I could just have one delivered." [​IMG]

    I had to laugh at loud when I read the title and then saw the picture! [​IMG]

    It looks like you have quite a bit of work ahead of you. I can't wait to see the pictures of the coops progress.

    My husband refused to build me a coop and frowned on spending money for supplies and I gave up the chickens I had. I have not completely given up though. I have started dumpster diving and gathering random bits of wood I see out for trash and the pallet or two here and there.

    I'll get there all by myself one of these days!

    Good luck with your coop. It will all be worth it in the end when your chickens are happy in their new place. [​IMG] [​IMG]
