building the chicken coop

The kids totally impressed me with their skills and dedication today. It took about 2 hours to put the coop we ordered together, and they were very cooperative and careful the whole time. They pretty much did it all by themselves, I just helped hold the pieces together for them. Then, of course we had to let the chicks check it out as well. We’re very excited about it. It’s super cute and seems very sturdy. We just beat the pouring down rain today, and when we went out afterwards to check the inside, it had stayed nice and dry. I think our hens will be very comfortable living in it.
