Coop Update - As of April 30

This is what the coop looked like at 7:30 p.m. last night.

The exterior door has been installed and all of the exterior and interior walls have been framed. The door leads in to what will be the feed/straw storage area. There will be a screen door on the interior partition that leads from the storage area into the actual coop area. Windows and chicken doors will go in as soon as the weather allows.

The tarp on top was put there to help keep it dry during the rain we are scheduled to have over the next few days. It wasn't very effective during last nights down pour. There was water standing on the floor when I left for work this morning and I didn't have time to deal with it. We are hoping that there will be some periods of no rain over the weekend that will allow us to get the siding and the roof on. Then we can work inside in the dry to finish it enough to move the chicks in. The are really getting big quickly and crowding their current living quarters!

I will post the weekend's progress next week.
