We recently decided to add a second coop, this one in the goat pasture. We plan to use the new coop as the primary one and the existing coop as the home for chicks/pullets or any sick hens we might have. Derek and my brother-in-law Jeff Paquette built the coop this weekend. Jeff is a professional builder who does all sorts of building projects. Although he primarily does home remodels, he does do the occasional small project such as our coop or a custom closet installation. His email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you are local to the Seattle area and need a good builder. This is one heck of a sturdy coop. We expect it will last many years.
And here is my long-lost friend. I hope she stays awhile.
