    Modified Purina Coop 4x8.jpg My boyfriend did a BEAUTIFUL job building a coop for our five (soon to be eight) hens. It is a modified purina coop, we made it 4x8' to accommodate more hens. We are not quite done, need more hardware for the nestbox closure (now we are weighing it down with a brick). The purina plans are slightly wrong in some of their measurements, please be sure to check them as you build to make sure you don't waste lumber.

    We were helped a lot in the beginning by Sam and Domino's follow-along here: It wasn't finished, but it was still a great instructional help in the beginning and we're grateful for the guidance.

    The run is not pictured, but there is a door in the back of the coop that opens into a open air run.

    It's a nice looking coop. Work in progress? What is the ladder for? Roosting or for entering/exiting the coop? Would really like to know the name of the paint color and the brand. What about ventilation?

    It would be nice to have more information on how you built your coop (and more photos, please, including more of the inside). From what I see, it looks like you did a nice job!
