Admitting defeat, we broke down and purchased pre-made coop and 'playpen'. These should be here in the next week so I will show all our girls once they have settled in. Did I mention that my hubby and a couple of friends stared at the purchased wood for several days before I stepped in and printed them a plan for a Chicken Tractor but seeing their utter confusion just ordered these today. I had no idea PetSmart had these available online. I did search for some local sources and the base models were around $850 without delivery, so being mindful of expenses (these chickens were not even my idea to get) I found both for under $500, delivered!
