Moving the Coop

Generally, I think we live a pretty normal life. But sometimes we do very un-ordinary things. I wish I would have remembered to take a photo of this one.

The other day, Brett decided it was time to move the chicken coop.

We also call it the poultry palace because it turned out so big. It was our first building project. We were trying to build a floorless coop that could be easily moved so the chickens would always have access to fresh grass. Well... it's a great coop but it is way too heavy to move easily.

Therefore, Brett got the tow-rope out and hooked the coop to the back of his truck. Not a pick-up truck, mind you, but an 18 wheeler cab. Like I said, I wish I would have taken pictures. It was quite a sight. Especially when he got stuck in the yard.

  1. Wow I wish I had a lot of space like you did instead of living in an apartment. Still, I manage to grow my own garden and everything. All i did was follow some simple steps that I found and was going in no time. You should check them out!

  2. Daniel,
    I applaud your efforts. I wish I had known that I could "farm" when we lived our suburban lifestyle. We jumped in headfirst and have been learning as we go.
