I scoured the internet for chicken coop designs and ended up finding an exterior design that I liked and my husband, Anthony, took it from there. He can build anything, and the coop is no exception. My friend, Cindy, had a great idea to build a little porch on one end and I came up with a celestial theme based on a ceramic sun that I just moved from our old homeplace. We still have to install one more window, hook up the gutter to a rain barrel and then I think we're finished. The actual building of the coop began a month ago and was pretty involved but fun. Anthony lost 7 pounds building the coop from the time he came home from work to night fall and on weekends in the blazing sun.
