    My husband is so happy to be done building our coop! We took the design from a book on chicken coops and modified to add the outside nest boxes. Figure we spent somewhere in the $800 range for supplies and he's been working on this for probably a month and a half. He's totally glad to be done!

    Cool Gray and April Thicket were the colors (Valspar brand) and we got them from Lowes. Just peeked in on them...they are all huddled in a corner together sleeping. :) It's a cool night, hope they do ok! I did close all the window hatches for the evening...just to block the draft. They aren't tight, but figured they didn't need cool air blowing on them.
