    This coop is well designed! Love the artistic finishing. The run is also long. Only problem is that the nest boxes are not ridged so eggs and sawdust can't stay in them

      Thanks! Nest boxes got boards put on the front eventually, i just made way too many of them!

    "Where's the details?"

    No descriptions at all. Dimensions and if this was a shed conversion would have really helped. It is really nice looking.

      not sure what you're looking at, but there are lots of descriptions and pictures from beginning to end on both of my chicken coops. Both coops are 8x8 and the second on has a detailed post on how i built it.

    for anyone looking, here is the link to the process over a few years...

    Original coop/shed was an 8x8 shed, with way too many nestboxes, and a low head clearance, which made it tough to clean. I built the second coop a few years later, and paid attention to ventilation and ease of cleaning. I used old cabinets for the nest boxes, and added boards to the front before the girls started laying. They peeps are all doing well in their new digs, and I'm much more at ease having the coop closer to the house than the woods. Thanks for checking in!

    Your flowers and rocks are what I have been thinking of doing to create the predator proofing. I really can't dig effectively in the soil where we are so I can trench out and bury wire. I could do this though and put the wire under the landscaping. Thanks!
