Finally, we finished the coop! Just in time for a raging 4th of July in fact :)
Four coats of red paint and what seemed like endless weekends of digging, sawing and screwing together parts and pieces, its done.
I think we both have been sore every monday for the past month. We surrounded the entire thing with a frame covered in hardware cloth dug about two feet into the dirt below for safety. We don’t want to loose these babies after all this work. They do offer some excellent weed control but they seem to get lazy and prefer a dust bath after about an hour of foraging.
