Well first off thanks for the wichita-cabin-coop as this was made after seeing the build on here. I posted a few pics as it was being built but got mad at my camera

Now I have figured out how to take them. Ok so the build started (about June) with me doing a foundation of blocks purchased from Lowes and wouldnt you know it I put it in the wrong spot

I am an picky person and have been in construction all my life so when it comes to looking at things I line them up and look at it way differant than most people. So I pulled the foundation apart and started over. Well after a few weekends I ended up with a coop fit for my 4 girls at least thats what we thought

After about a month in the coop one started to crow

We ended up with 3 girls now as we are in a urban enviroment and do not want to piss off the neighbors. If I had it my way well we would still have 4

I do not like my neighbors much (another story) and do not really care. So fast forward to September and it was my sons birthday and he says I want a buff orphington as his chicken was the rooster that we got rid of. Well in the end we now have 6 total and that is it

After about a month of walking up the hill I built this shed to store all my chicken stuff in. After all that I have been through I wish I would have built things differantly but hey we all do in the end
