    We got the new coop done today and moved the hen's in. They were checking it out once we got it finished, but MontyJ said when it was time for bed, they didn't want to go in that coop....they wanted the old one. :/ Oh well they will adapt I'm sure. I took some pictures today, but being Easter, I will post them later.

    I still have to put the rest of the trim on all of the corners and around the window, but it's livable. Maybe Dew can get some shots of the ventilated soffits for me tomorrow. It should allow for excellent airflow across the top of the coop, well above the hens.

    I looks great. You do good work Monty and I like the color selection dew. A nice addition to your property and a secure home for the chicks. :)

    Great job, MontyJ! Looks like you have yourself a good-sized, sturdy coop there. I hope the chickens appreciate all your hard work. I know Dew does.
