Nobody sets out to build a chicken coop and says “I can’t wait to screw this up” but yet, it happens. You read building instructions, you make plans and you do your research fully intending to not make the same mistakes as everyone else. You are sure that this coop is going to be absolutely perfect. Well, at least we were! Even the best laid plans go awry and even though the coop looks great when it’s done, the day comes when you look at it and say I really didn’t think this through did I? Whether the doors are too small, the roof is too low, you can’t fit enough chickens, there’s not enough light or there’s too much ventilation (especially in a predators can get in sort of way) something went wrong. *sigh* I’m pretty sure we’ve all been there.
