ask me how I liked my chicken coop, because he was thinking of picking one up at the
TSC, I decided I had to own up!
readymade for around $250.00 on sale at TSC, it's not....
and here's the reason why.
We didn't even attempt to put ours together after seeing this...just went straight back to the store and got our money back. Even the clerk was surprised by how small we explained it was! Maureen from It's All Connected did a post on her coop
shown here, called "Chicken Ranching on a Very Small Scale", but she
plans to add-on to hers and if she only has a couple chickens, she really is okay with
that because there's only her to take care of with eggs and her daughter runs
a rescue farm for chickens and can take them back over the winter until
Maureen does enlarge hers!
Our idea now is to build our own in keeping with the basic style of this one Karen
from The Art of Doing Stuff built.
from Heather Bullard Lifestyle Blog.
I really can't imagine anyone doing a better job than Karen has on her urban coop!

Dan & I would like to build our own, but have a lean-to roof look to it, rather
than the flat roof or the peaked roof. We'll get there and when we do
I'll definitely post about it. We have some other priorities going on
right now with gardens, kids, dock, getting our main floor painted, etc...
but we'll GET THERE!
So, if you read my first blog about the chicken coop entitled
"...And a Chicken Coop?! Wha?!..."
(also known as "A Day in the Life of an Impulsive Couple")
you'll understand how disappointed we were.
Cluck, cluck! Tough luck!
