    8X4' Chicken coop for 10 Rhode Island Reds. Drop down doors on each side for easy access to eggs. Removable nesting boxes and trap door in floor to easily sweep pine shavings under coop. Great compost maker for the garden. Run is 16X4'. Dimensions were made a minimize cost of materials. Chickens appear happy. Very easy to clean and collect eggs. Our 3 year old can easily collect our eggs in the morning. Eaves and windows provide adequate ventilation. Roosts run the length of the coop. Well insulated to withstand -10 degree winters. So far so good.

    Nice looking coop but not too much to go on. In process pictures would be good or more pics of the finished inside.
