When the Rohe's came in town for spring break and baby showers, Timmy stayed with us to help build the coop. I think the final cost was less than $100, as we used the leftover salvageable deck boards from ripping up our deck. The deck was causing the house to rot and attracting termites--too low to the ground, north side of the house, etc. etc. So, we saved what we could and the boys built this! We even saved the glass panes from some large windows that rotted out, so the chickens have fancy sky-lights.
A celebratory glass of bubbly apple cider for Tumm-o.
Molly checking out the chickens....not so sure about these little buggers.
