Come visit our blog about growing food and raising chickens in Chicago at Green Roof Growers.

Little Green Girl (aka LGG, in her little green jacket), Debbie, and I went on a field trip last week to check progress on Bruce's chicken coop. This would be fun.


 LGG hadn't seen the baby chicks and, just as important, hadn't met Carl. Shortly before we left, Bruce called. Could Art come over to help him and Matt get the coop roof on? Absolutely. Here's the positioning of the coop, which sits under Bruce's deck.


 We scurried in to get a hen's-eye view...


Bruce showed us the shingles he'll apply to the exterior. I've said it before: This is one classy coop.
