Maybe I should just keep my mouth shut. Again you did a fantastic job.thumbsup.gif


We have plans for a run behind an adjoining building (see videos on one of my member pages) but we need to re-side that building before installing the run.  We also plan to let them free range after they learn to lay eggs in the nesting boxes.  We don't want them to learn to like the barn rafters like our other flock did.

Thats good I live on a hundred acres & having a nice big run is great especially when you can't let them out because of predators or bad weather. I've been keeping mine locked until I can be out there with them. I hate it but I don't want to loose them.You really do have a styling coop mine are good but nothing like yours. here's my newest coop its kinda of different its three sided.

I'm out of eggs. But I know where some brown ones are. I now raise big Ol' Honkin' Bob Whites & Layed back Coturnix. Pray For Rain In Texas!

Oh, I understand.

 

And, 7L farms: I like your coop too!! Do you have a floor on it?

I think your coop turned out fantastic. It was very smart to add the work area. Great design!
