Here's our new coop. I used rustoleum truck bed liner on the floor. The nest boxes slide out the side for cleaning and there is a screened vent above the nest boxes that could convert to five more boxes easily. The coop is 6' x 8' and you can stand up in it. Under the coop is screened in for a shaded area which adds to the 15' x 8 run and makes it possible to have the wheelbarrow at door level for cleaning. Security was a big concern, so we went down 30" with the hardware cloth all the way around as well as layering the cloth scraps while backfilling. A solar powered door and lights are on the way along with a 12 volt motion detector light to give us a heads up on predators.
