"Coop Arrival"!!!!!

The new chicken coop arrived today! Steve, the delivery and set up guy did a fantastic job. I thought I was going to have to move one of my largest blueberry bushes and sacrifice some strawberry plants, but Steve suggested an alternate that would be more work for him but would not harm any of my plantings. Nice, eh?

This first photo was taken by our driveway trail cam. The rest of the photos are either taken by me or Don.....

Steve used a motorized piece of equipment called a "mule" to move the coop.

Instead of taking it along the side of the deck, he suggested we take it the long way around, past the garage and behind the beds of plants.

Into its own little wooded clearing..........

Talk about precision placement!

Here it is set into place. Now to set up/organize the interior (feed and water equipment has been ordered) and build a "predator proof" chicken run. :)

Gorgeous!I love the interior skylight and the glass over the doors. Did you level the site before hand? Can't wait to see what you do with the interior.

He can move it out on the ice in the winter for an ice fishing shanty! :-)
