Building a chicken coop

After the stark realization that we are getting chicks in like 2 days we decided to put together a chicken coop.

Milly went into the big city and bought the materials. We spent about $250 and think we have enough to put together a royal palace (at least for a chicken). It will be 8’x8’ and the walls are 6 ft high.

Here’s the beginnings of the structure. Grey beard framed up the floor on some and put them on some old poles I peeled a couple of years back.

We did up 3 walls like this and made another one with a door frame.

    Wow! Now THIS we can approve! This meets our standards and is approved for erection for our fine feathered freinds.
