    Great idea with a video but would benefit from a write up too.

    I built this coop to sit along the side of my shed, and is enclosed within a 12' x 12' dog fence. The coop was constructed over a few weekends wiht materials from my shop and Lowes. The coop is 6' x 3' by 6' high. The window is from work. There are 4 nesting boxes along the front. Both sides open up for easy access. I installed some inexpensive vinyl flooring to make cleaning up easier. The sliding door can be opened/closed from outside the fence. The roof is mounted using two heavy-duty hinges, so I can prop it up during the summer. All hardware is galvanized. We have three hens now and plan to add 6 more in the spring. I coated with two coats of good quality paint to match the shed, the shutters were added to also match the shed. Thanks for watching!
