Any way we spend numerous hours searching the internet for back yard hutches in our local area, because we like to support locals first. Finally bought one on ebay which of course came from Melbourne. Ha Ha! After a week one parcel arrived that was great but we only had half a hutch, we contacted Australia Post and two days later the other parcel found and delivered .
Now they could start construction. It was decided that the coop needed a nesting box added. Which was a great father son experience, both chatting over the dinner table as to how this should be done. Much talk about adding a ceiling fan and insulation which exasperated my no 4 son, thinking this is never going to be completed. So l suggested a nice sofa and curtains for the chickens also. He he he! Once completed a spot in the backyard had to be found that would not interfere with the neighbours. They say that they can be bribed, with eggs of course.
