The posts are concreted in and now just to build the roof and the structure is just about done. I ordered some Weld mesh wire from ebay today - 1/2" x 1" 30m of it. OH have been looking at a website where he can get the plastic corrugated sheets from to make the roof.
It's slow because he is doing an hour or so in the evenings and he really wants to get this right, after all the hoo-har. I am happy that it's being done properly and don't even mind waiting til middle August to get the girls.
I know you all probably think this has been quite a saga, but I am just pleased any chickens who live here will be in a safe run and coop. As I said to OH during one of the many arguments - I will not take on any animal where I cannot provide food, water, warmth in winter, coolness in summer and a safe environment. If I can't do it right, I won't do it at all.
