    I currently have 3 Buff Orpington, 1 Silver Laced Wyandotte, 3 EE/Spangled Russian Orloff hens, 3 French Black Copper Marans hens and a French Black Copper Marans roo in my older coop.
    In 2010 we built a 2nd coop with 2 seperated runs for my bantam cochin roo and his girls, 3 bantam cochins (2 frizzled) a Blue laced red Wyandotte, a light Brahama mix and an EE on one side and a splash Ameraucana roo, 3 Ameraucana hens and 3 Cuckoo Marans/Ameraucana hens on the other. I also have babies in both runs right now ~ the girls will stay and the boys will have to go.
    We also have a great Beagle "Copper", 2 German Shepherd Dogs "Abby" & Chance" 2 grey male cats ~ Patch & Shadow, 1 old parakeet and assorted fish - both inside and in a pond, and lots & lots of honeybees!
    My human family includes a daughter who graduated from college in May of 2008 (Yeah!) and now teaches English in a middle school in Japan, a step daughter who is grown and is a teacher in Martha's Vineyard, Mass. and a wonderful & handy husband who tolerates my many critters and flower gardens!

    Would like to see more photos and more details of why you built it the way you did and if you would change anything.

    What do you have under your roost? (picture #2) Is is a way to clean up from the outside? Also, can one have a coop that size with only 4 chickens? Thank you. Nice set up!

    This looks great, the paint matches the wood perfectly and it seems very durable!
