coop complete!

My marvelous husband and boys finished the chicken coop today! No plans, just a little ingenuity and a lot of 2x4s!
It's got a roosting ledge, a slide down door to keep them in at night, a drop down door so we can get to their eggs, a big door so we can clean it out, a chicken run and a vent in the roof for ventilation! It's pure genius! It even has a window with glass!

Looks good! TR & TC are going to have fun cleaning that run out!

Yeah, they still don't seem to mind it. It's going to wear thin pretty soon tho!

In college I did some research on tobacco adverts of the early 20th century and, according to my 35 minutes of freshman-level study on Virginia Slims, this is where you will be sneaking your cigarettes.

Wait. Maybe the joke was they didn't have a chicken coop. ID enforcement at The Union and Mycroft's was lax, so I don't remember it all that well. :)

Anyway, congrats to them on finishing the coop.
