Seeing is how we have all this new building going on I would share my fun too.
I built a new coop for all my chickens to stay in instead of having a bunch of little coops all over the place.
Its 6' square and the main door is 6' tall.

That's one mighty nice shed!  May get you to build me a dog house when the wife finds out exactly how many tractors I own.

It is going to go next to the white shed and have a 12✖16 fenced yard. The yard will go up soon then I can getrid of both the other coops. The little chicks Igot 2 months ago are now free ranging in my garden and doing a bang up job on the pests!! You must train them or they may eat the wrong things!!! I took the time to pick all the cabbage worms i could find and feed them to the chicks;-) now they go hunting for them along with moths and tomato caterpillars!! I am loving these little ladies ( wont be little for long they grow to be 8+ pounds! Black Astralorps)
Grass is doing pretty well considering all the traffic it gets.
How are you doing Tom ? Are you back to 100% yet?

That's a good assortment.  Dad has several, all different kinds.  I can't remember, but all the eggs are good.
