Project 32 of many. . .

"Chicken poot!" - Jonathan Daniel Williams


























So profound huh? Sometimes the silly things said just stick. I set out about a month ago to build a chicken coop and today I bring home 6 chickens to their very own "poot."

I would like to thank all the scoffers and critiques out there who think that I am insane, your words have fueled my fire and made me all the more determined to succeed with this! Yes, I know I will have messes to clean up and I know I won't save money. I know and I am okay with that. I want to know where my food comes from and I want my children to know where their food comes from and to me having chickens takes me a step closer in this.  So, without further ado. . . the process. . .


The process is not going to get any more broken down or explain than those pictures right there. Okay, okay, I will just say a few words, building is a lot like making a dress, only instead of using fabric, thread and needles you use wood, screws and power tools. If this were a wood working 101 class I'd have likely gotten a C- in the class. Give me 20 years and maybe I'll get a little bit better at it. I don't understand why cutting in a straight line is so difficult!!!
