chicken coop done… check

So now we have three chickens. Actually we have had them for more than two weeks and they have been living in my office. For various reasons I was impelled to get them out of my office which required me to build a chicken coop and run. In my typical fashion I plunged ahead without plans and made it up as I went along. This, and the heat we had the last few days, meant it took me far longer than I expected to complete my not-so-masterpiece. Anyway, it’s done and I’m glad. The kids are happy. The dog is somewhat perplexed. The chickens are doing better. And in about six months we should start getting a few eggs.
