Very cute coop.  Suggest cleats on the ramp a few inches apart so they don't slip off on rainy days

The purpose of life is not to arrive at the grave with a well preserved body but rather to skid in sideways, in a cloud of dust, beat up and bloody, grinning ear to ear and yelling "MAN WHAT A HELLUVA RIDE"

Very cute!  Can't tell from your pics, but if you don't have hardware cloth screwed over the screen portion of your nice, big window, then I'd do that ASAP.  Despite not reading of them or seeing them in the movies, I'm sure Middle Earth has some troll-like raccoons running around. tongue

Caretaker of a lovely mixed flock including: australorp, plymouth rocks, wyandotte, d'uccles, silkies, EEs, andalusian, and a few seramas, plus a golden retriever, great dane, and three cats.  I always swore that I wouldn't succumb to chicken math.  I lied.

Mama (and Papa) to 1 RIR, 2 EE, 1 BR mix, 1 Leghorn, 1 Dominique, 6 Unknown chicklets, 2 cats, 1 dog, 1 childish husband, and a partridge in a pear tree. Ok... I'm kidding about the pear tree. It's a fig tree.
