The Roof, the Roof, the Roof is on...

Well we have a long way to go still, but the coop is coming together nicely. We are having our babies spend the night in the hen house, and they seem to be adjusting just fine. We haven't put on the chicken wire around the run, so they are stuck inside.
The rain has really slowed our progress in getting the coop finished. We can't paint the whole thing, so we have been waiting till we can to even tackle it. I don't want to put the chicken wire up until we have painted, but the girls would greatly benefit from running around the coop area. We were able to get a lot of things built, even in the rain, thanks to the roof.
The installation of these panels was super easy, and we used a shaded UV protected plastic, kinda like sunglasses, but a little lighter in shade. These are light weight, easy to move, and perfect for the coop! It allows sunlight all day inside the hen house, and not a leak to be found.
Once the wood dries out, we will take a day and paint the whole thing, wire it up, and be done with this project!
