I was really naive about this whole coop thing. I always drive by my neighbors and see about 30 chickens free ranging. I figured we would have a simple coop for my girls to roost in at night and a covered run so I wouldn't have to worry about them during the day. I'm too paranoid and attached to them to let them free range. Now the coop is nearly finished, but I keep finding ways that it doesn't seem secure enough, or not good enough for other reasons. My poor, loving hubby has spent many, many hours on this thing, but I keep finding other stuff for him to do to it! It's become some sort of obsession!
