    My DH worked so very hard to build the new coop. He wanted it done for the new peeps that are 1 month old. I painted and did the trim and sign. I am so proud of our joint venture and the hens already love it and they march up the ramp every night at dusk.

    What cute touches with the off kilter white trim.

    It looks like you used chicken wire on at least part of your coop. Chicken wire is NOT predator proof!! Hardware cloth would be more secure.
    Is that insulation hanging down around the back of the nest boxes? Chickens aren't above eating that, causing problems for themselves.
    It would be helpful to have either more pictures of the building process or detailed descriptions of what was done during the build. What are the dimensions of the coop?

    Are there anythings you would do differently, if you were to build this coop again?
    Thanks for sharing your coop with us.

    I'm betting they all sleep in the nests. Roosts should be higher than nests. Other than that you need more pics and build info. It is pretty though!
