My next step is to build a chicken coop.
Did you know that Williams-Sonoma sells coops? The coop pictured below retails for $1,500. I like the design of the cedar coop & run with planter box on top. Perhaps I could use the basic design and build something similar.
I enlisted the help of my carpenter (Walt) and we talked about a similar design but with some customizations. We agreed on a reasonable price and work has commenced!
