    Coup de Cadieux... This coop is based off Heather Bullard's Coop Design. We used her general plans, but repositioned the doors and doubled the coop so it was symmetrical. It now has two end roosting areas with a large run in the middle of the coop and one in the back. My husband added a solar powered door so the chickens can go in safely at night and out in the morning. The entire back run areas is covered in wire so no critters can get in. My husband, Kevin and our dear Neighbor Pete built the coop. It's just beautiful if I do say so myself.

    Easter Brunch at the coop. First day for the 5 week old chicks to go from their home in the garage to their new home in the garden.

    Memorial Day at the coop. Pete built fences to go around the flower beds as the dogs kept plopping on them to get a better look at the chicks.

    Gorgeous! Would love to see the inside. Since you have two enclosures, can you isolate the run if needed?

    OMG! That is beyond beautiful. And so well-designed. Martha would be just as jealous as I am!

    Best of all: the sentiment about wearing barn wear in public is priceless. I wish I knew you!!!

    This coop is amazing. I bought Heather's plans & abandoned them quickly due to the small size. You've really created something special here!
