The Chicken Coop… Part 2

I am sure that all of you are impatiently awaiting an update on The Chicken Coop. LOL.  Well, we have made progress.  But, I fear I am at a standstill at the moment.  You see, just so you know this is “my” project.  What does that mean?  Well, that means that I am supposed to fund  it and my husband (who has never raised a chicken in his life) will build it with his great ideas of how it should be.  If I am funding it and even if I am not, I am pretty sure it will be my way.  So, I sort of pay for it and he gives his input and I tell him howwe will do it.  So far so good.  But, now it is raining and I can’t make up my mind about some details, so it sits.  Jim keeps saying “you only have a few days, so you better figure it out”.  He must think that I am actually going to put those baby chicks and one duck in the coop right away.  NO!  They are staying in the house.  We will have to see how that goes???  so, here it is.  I promise it WILL be pretty when I’m done with it

The Chicken Coop… Part 1

Another one of my “spring” projects is a chicken coop.  I am sure this will be quite the undertaking because it has to fit all of my chickens.  That’s right all 2 of them.  I only really need one, but I couldn’t let her be lonely.  I am not sure what I am more excited about the fresh eggs or the poo for my compost!

Today Jim, Cam, Addi and I went to pick up the wood to start the project.  Huge Thank You to our long time friends the Capps Family!!!  I am pretty indecisive so I know how big the coop will be and the rest I will figure out along the way.  I am sure that’s how all great plans start, right???  This is Part 1 for a reason, be prepared for the play by plays.
