    Not a lot of progress on the coop this week. Made the mistake of consulting my brother. He is a genius designer and redesigned the whole roof/lid mechanism for me. In the meantime I wired the bottom of the coop and worked on a section of fence to enclose the yard so the girls can free range.

    Here's my previous post.

    Here are some current pics:

    Don't you hate it when know-it-all brothers butt in? [​IMG] At least you got fencing up for the girls! Maybe you can find another project for your brother....unless you weren't being sarcastic when you call him a genius designer! [​IMG] If he is, then tell him to hurry up and get the coop finished!!

    He's designing it. I'm building. You can watch the ingenious design in action here:

  4. My husband has a brother like that! Have you thought about using smaller gauge wire like 1/2" x 1/2" to keep out weasels and snakes?
