    Great job! And the girls look happy.

    I guess when the snow is on the ground, you don't have to refridgerate the eggs.

    THanks for all the replies;) I only recycled the window, shingles, and a few 2x4s. Ya its bin hell here, it was 27 today:rant luckily i only had to put the plywood on the right side of the run. all this week its bin high 40s o low 20s and i had to work on it(BTW im only 13!). once you start you cant stop, the ground was frozen and there was snow and i was all wet and cold yucky!but in the end is always worth it when you see the little chickes are running around happy:lol: do any of you guys/girls now what type of chicken that is? its a bantam.

    Nice Coop! The bird you mentioned looks like a pet-quality Golden Sebright.
