    The coop and run are extremely secure from all types of predators, egg collection is from the outside and the coop has storage for all of the feed and supplies needed for the coop.

    Quick Sketch Up of what the coop is going to look like.

    We buried 1/2 welded wire a foot deep sweeping away from the coop to discourage any digging predators. All of the posts were set in concrete and we used 1 x 6 fascia board around the perimeter of the coop to keep the wire and run sturdy.

    The Egg collection door on the back gives access to 6 nesting boxes and their is a storage area under the nesting boxes that can be accessed from both the outside and inside of the coop.

    This coop looks very attractive and well constructed. It doesn't appear to have very good ventilation, but maybe it just isn't visible in the photos. Some more building details would be helpful as well as cost and supplies.

    Thanks for all of the comments! The siding is hardie board. The entire soffit area under the roof is open with wire so there is tons of airflow. AS far as the plans go, we built to a design and didn't have any formal plans drafted.

    looks very well built and super secure. Is that composite wood on the inside? I'm impressed if it is. I only see one vent. Will that be enough?
