Nov 26 – Looking outside the living room window will be a lot different now.  That’s the new chicken coop being built.  David thinks the mini barn would be better suited to storage of machines (rototiller, mowers, snowblower, etc) and decided to build a dedicated chicken coop.  I wanted it closer to the house so I could see when they go to roost and don’t have to stand around waiting or chase them in because I don’t want to come back out.  It’s going to be 8 x 12 feet, with full 8 foot ceilings (no more stooping – the chicken room in the barn is only 6 feet tall).  The chicken area will be 8×8 and I’ll have an area to keep my brooder box so chicks can be out here instead of in the garage every spring.  I can’t wait til it’s done!
