Mrs McAndrew, who is carer of one of the shed’s members, had joked that one day the men should make her a chicken coop when they were looking for a new project.

In fact, the men loved the idea and began building the coop a few weeks ago; they’re proud of the finished product.

While Mrs McAndrew’s new chickens will be laying eggs, they will also add to her sustainable backyard, helping with the compost process.
