    This coop is made all by kids from 3-11


    #1[​IMG]this is the coop (not painted)
    it is made from plastic-coated wood and plywood roof

    #2[​IMG]my little brothers painted this side

    #3[​IMG] this side I made for my brothers

    #4[​IMG] close up

    #5[​IMG]my side

    #6[​IMG]the inside with a hammer for size comparison ( this photo will be updated soon) the nails that are poking out are gone now

    #7[​IMG]the side with the door

    #8[​IMG]the run is almost done!

    #9[​IMG]different view

    #10[​IMG]inside

    #11[​IMG]inside

    #12[​IMG]the second story nesting box


    #13[​IMG]

    #14[​IMG]the inside of the nesting box

    #15[​IMG]the doorway into the nesting box

    #16[​IMG]one of my helpers

    the " new idea " for the nesting box is:
    in pic #16 the plywood on top will be cut into a flap to get the eggs
    in pic #15 you can see the inside, a hole with a ladder will be cut,
    in pic #14 is the idea for a divider,

    do you think the nesting box idea will work?


    if you have any suggestions for a door,windows,or roost PM me thank you! :)
