    This is our first time with chickens, and this is the first coop I have built, I didn't have any paper plans for the build, I knew what I wanted to build in my head, so I and got the materials and started to build. the link below shows start to almost finished. I plan on installing a permanent metal roof over the run this spring. there is always something to add, that's why I stated almost finished....
    if you open each picture there will be a brief description of the picture.

    I looked at other coops and got some Ideas, and I spent a lot of evenings running ideas through my mind. going to bed thinking about it and waking up thinking about it, and the end result came out pretty good I think.

    thank you for all the comments
