We finished framing the coop and built the nesting boxes this week. Although a lot of the work I need to do myself the kids are all helping whenever they can.
The kids said they were going to put the coop in the front yard and sell hot dogs out of it if owning chickens didn't work out for us :)
I got pretty frustrated trying to cut the pieces for the nesting box with only a circular saw, but I finally figured it out and even though it is far from perfect I am feeling pretty good about what we've accomplished so far.
This is the first time I've ever built anything like this and sometimes
the task seems a bit overwhelming but it is so rewarding to push through
my doubts and insecurities. I am really enjoying the whole process!
