    That's great! Nice coop [​IMG] Similar situation here. My husband Brought up getting chickens and when I brought home the chicks he was stunned. He complained half way through building the Coop/run but suddenly, he became softened by them. Making sure it was 100% predator proof, going to our garden to bring back lettuce for them to eat out of his oh men [​IMG]

    He's a softy! He loves animals. The kind of guy that will stop his bike in the middle of a ride to pet a cat. He will cross the street to pet a dog tied up waiting for its owner. He has become the self proclaimed Chicken Herder, with his long pole that he waves around to help me corral the girls back home. He has crawled under blackberries to catch a chicken that was traumatized. He is always wondering "would the chickens like to eat this?" He thinks the ducks are HYSTERICAL.

    He just likes to complain about them. "YOU'RE chickens are destroying the garden again!" "YOU'RE chickens are digging up my burm again!"

    Haha. He's the best! [​IMG]
