Slow Progress and Time is a Gettin’ Short
I will finish this thing before the chicks start laying. The floor is in, and the front wall is partially framed. I put the window in temporarily so I could better imagine the finished product. I’ll pull it back out tomorrow to finish framing.
For the roof, I’m rethinking my green idea and am instead considering putting in a couple skylights. The extra light might help extend their laying in the winter and fall, and I if my birds escape, freeze, or become prey for the local wildlife, I’ll just convert the coop to a writing studio and call it rock and roll.
Coming soon: finished coop pictures and a discussion of the pros and cons of the booming backyard chicken movement.
