After months of research to find the perfect plan, gathering materials and many evenings of construction…. our new chicken coop is finally ready for the ladies! The Handy man did such a great job incorporating so many great time saving features. My favorite is the pulley system to raise and lower the ramp/ door! He’s the best. We decided on a budget of 200.00 for the coop and between shopping at the local discount lumber store, some salvaged items from mom and dad and finishing touches from our local Habitat ReStore we came in well below budget! Yeah! Our new coop is big enough to house of ladies and small enough we can move it with the four wheeler. Aunt Margaret is hatching chicks for us and hopefully we can make it down to get them in the next few weeks! I told the Handy man last night I may have to “chicken”nap a few ladies from Mom just for the fun of it until we get our! We’ll see shes pretty protective of her girls. Big thanks to hubby for all his hard work!
