Mr. Polly and Finn are building a chicken coop. This is a lot of work for some little feathered creatures! Last weekend the children and I spent all day Saturday putting three coats of paint on the coop, the doors, the nesting boxes......it was a hot day, but the patio is shaded!
This week my husband put the roof on, secured a batch of shingles to use, hired a lad to clear the weedy corner of the garden where the coop will go, and built the super-heavy base.
At every stage he says "now it's starting to look like something!!"
