    My Coop
    Here is my coop. We already had a Insulated 16x16 shed that we used for storage and decided to clean it out and use it. We used half of the shed to make 5 pens. 4 pens are 3 feet wide and 8 feet long and one is 4 feet wide and 8 feet long. Each pen has it's own door that goes out to the run.[​IMG]
    The out side run also has 5 separate pens. We used dog kennel panels for the out side and used 2x4 and chicken wire to separate the pens in between. Each pen has it's own door to get from one pen to the other. The top of the pens are enclosed with chicken wire and we laid a 4x8 sheet of plywood at the end of each pen on top for shade.

    Wow, nice job! I absolutely adore the size of the run that you built attached to the shed/coop. One thing that I would improve is the amount of ventilation in your coop. Ideally, there should be at least 1 square foot of ventilation per bird.
