    We named it The Perch. My husband is a carpenter and between the two of us reading tons of articles and knowing what we wanted for our flock, built this amazing home for our Birds.

    Is the PVC a feeder or a drain of some kind? If it is a feeder how is it set up?

      Pvc is watering system. We set it up so we can water from outside of run, it fills up a tube inside their coop and then under it. I waited until out water line was very low, went inside the coop the open end cap of that tube and it still had 2-3 gallons of water in it. This system will be tricky in winter as we had a few freezes and the nipples leaked and created ice inside coop. Prob will use a heated bucket for winer.

      I will also Add since we made our coop moveable (i give my husband 3 or 4 more times of moving that beast before we leave it in one spot) so i have installed a hardwire cloth apron around the base for diggers. I have not seen any signs of diggers yet..

      Last but not least I am not happy about the door slide. I have to go into the run every night and clean out the track so door sets down in track. The girls do a good job of getting pine shavings and straw in there and the door wont shut completely. #firsttimeflockowners #learningaswego
