    Our Coop
    I'm Building a 8' by 8' coop with 8' by 16' run
    The coop has 12 nests, a automatic poop door which I'm making myself, the roof has a 2' by 8' skylite and can pop open to add cool air and fully wired with timed and switched lights.
    The run is 8' roofed and 8' open all inclosed with hard wire.
