It was down to the wire for hubby to get the roof on it and finished. Still a few finishing touches but pretty much done. The best part is the only items we had to purchase to build was one roll of wire for 35.00 and some nails. Everything else was free - wood, steel roof, wire we already had from bunny's cage, all the extra hardware. My husband is excellent at repurposing things that he picks up from various places. The supplies for the chicks (waterers, feeders, feed, and grit) only came to 27.00.
Now we just need to clean the back yard up. It has had many purposes over the years. For the first four years the dogs were in this area, then for three summers we had an above ground pool, then it was just left to grow weeds, etc. Now it is home to our first flock of chickens. We hope this next Spring to put in a huge pond in the front yard and maybe raise catfish.
