Sorry I couldn't get anymore pics my phone is acting crazy! The dimensions of the wire is 2 inch wide x 4 inch long. The only things I have negative to say about the coop is there is no door. I also don't like the wire used to enclose the coop.

Yes he has other designs:) he even custom builds them to fit your needs. This coop was $700. I will be cutting a door and puttin small hardware cloth around the bottom. It is 6 1/2 ft wide and 11 ft long. I'm gonna let my chickens free range so it shouldn't be too packed in there. He told me it holds around 20 birds. Also it is kinda small inside the run. I love the coop but there is a few things I wish I would've noticed before purchasing. Other then that it is a really nice coop! I tried answering all of yalls question:) let me know if I missed anything!

Hey Bama!! Wasn't able to get a pic of my neighbors coop with the animal face imprint. He had straightened the fence out....

 ~tracy, proud Navy Seal wife & mom to 17 chickens, 6 killer cats (Loki Boki Boca Raton, Poly Woggles Boondoggles, Greyball the Sprayball, Bentley the Monsta, Little Gurl, Baby Bagel Butt), 5 guinea hens (I'm thinking they are mobsters related to the mafia), 1 adorable but extremely skittish formerly abused doggie & a conure who fell in our yard! It's farm fair time in NJ! See: visitnj.org/art...

It's a nice looking coop but there is no way that 20 birds would work in it. The general rule is 4 sq.ft. per bird for interior space and 10 sq.ft. per bird for run space. Run space is not a huge issue since you are free ranging. What are the dimensions of the coop itself? I would definitely put some 1/2" hardware cloth over the wire that's on it now.
