My chicken coop project…What a great Valentine’s gift!

project chicken coop 1

I’ve been wanting chickens since we moved here.  My dear husband just isn’t into animals like I am.  Let’s just say he has been dragging his feet when it comes to chickens.  He doesn’t want to be tied down anymore than he already is.  Which is very funny because we are tied down plenty already with 2  1/2 horses (1 is a mini that’s how you can have a 1/2 a horse) and 3 dogs.  The gardens in the summer need attention and well we are just tied down.  We were talking to a group of our friends and he mentioned I wanted chickens thinking they all would be on his side but to his surprise they all said ” let her have chickens they’re so easy”.  He started to talk about plans for the chicken coop.  Sometimes it just takes him awhile to warm up to an idea. I had been looking at coop ideas and so I was already to sit down and plan my dream coop. Looking at Craigslist one day I saw a cute little shed for $50 listed.  Made a call on it but didn’t get a call back.  Figured it sold.  A week later the guy called back and asked if we could move it.  My dear hubby assured him he had the means to move the shed.  “Well come and get it then. I’ve had two other people come and they couldn’t figure how to move it.”  My hubby hooked up the trailer and was off with in the hour.   It was getting dark when him and our son-in-law  got back but they brought me my chicken coop.  I was tickled pink.  So the chicken coop project has begun.  So what’s your latest project?  Have a great Valentine’s Day dreaming up some projects with your sweetheart!
