New Chicken Coop

We have decided on a site for our new chicken coop. It is going to be in the corner of the barn pictured in the April 12 post. Not our first choice, but we needed a southern wall where we could put a window. There technically is electricity running to this barn, but we have not used it or tested it in awhile, so we need to do that.

The chicken house will be in the corner of the barn which is a 5x7 area. The chicken run will be under the overhang which still gets plenty of sun.

We found some wood from the woodpile that will work for framing, but we need to purchase plywood and chicken fence. We will keep you posted as to progress, although this in and of itself was a huge step. I can not wait for chick day this Friday.
