(By the way, my Dad likes to build stuff with wood, and we are generally do-it-ourselfers.) Dad cut the boards on the miter saw and James, Carley, Anna, and I screwed the boards in and stained them. We built a coop with an upstairs and a downstairs. The upstairs had enclosed sides, roof, and a staircase for them to get up and down. Later after all our hard work we put the chickens in their coop. When we put them out, they flew around and pecked at the grass, they were so happy to be out of a little cardboard box!
