    We found ourselves the proud owners of chickens, but we had no coop.
    We also had no experience in construction or farming. Soooo, we bought a bunch of books of coop designs, a couple books on general construction techniques and headed off to the lumber yard.
    I gave the salesman a list of what I wanted. He looked it over and asked what it was for. "A chicken coop," I responded. "That's no chicken coop," he replied. "It's a chicken palace."
    I don't know if our nine chickens agree, but they don't complain too much.
    Here's the finished coop.
    The coop half finished.
    Chickie is the big guy.

    Your coop and run look very nice, however you did not provide any details (other than the 1 picture of the coop half built) on how to build it. I also have no idea what you did on the inside.
    I don't see any ventilation built in. Are there windows that open on the sides or back that I can't see?
    Are there other light sources besides the small window in the front?
    What all was on your supplies list? About how much did you spend to make this coop?
    Are there things that you would do differently?
