Chicken Coop - Pen Construction

Thanks to Amy Finley for sending in photos of the first phase of her coop construction.

"I didn't want anything to do with my husband's grand plan to grow chicken... but oh well, that's how it goes. He is a custodian at a grade school that was hatching chicks for the spring term. He came home one day with 8 fuzzy little chicks and grand plans to eat free eggs. Thank you so much for the chicken coop plans you sent. After careful consideration we decided to start with a small temporary and easily movable pen so that we could take our time building a larger permanent coop. I knew the plan was in trouble when Mike, my husband, insisted on starting with 6 foot 4x4's. Nothing temporary or portable about that. $300 some dollars later I am sending you pictures of phase one of the chicken coop. They shouldn't start laying eggs until late fall, so we will build the rest later. For now home is a large dog house. They really seem to like it."
