    These first two are the end and side view of the basic frame, with the Corgi Foreman watching closely [​IMG]

    This one shows the braces we used on top and the metal thingies we used on the corner [​IMG] [​IMG]
    This was an oopsie (my fault *sigh* [​IMG]
    The back end, as you can see one side is covered and the other is enclosed with chicken wire and then hardware cloth. Take no chances!! (anyone know if I can electrifiy that for a bit of extra naughtyness for the coons?)

    The front of the coop. It is covered by 1/2inch hardware cloth doublestapled all the way around, and yes those are ties you see holding the two halves together. Noone said this wasn't a redneck coop [​IMG]

    Here's the door! Isn't it pretty? LOL[​IMG]
    Here is the brooder inside the coop, keeps the babies and older girls seperate and warm! [​IMG]
    Here are the feeding and watering stations. As you can see, the roo has claimed one as "his"! And a couple of the girls on the roost, my what a terrific thing recycling is!

    This is a interesting idea...I don't know quite what it will serve as when the birds mature...

    I would not advise electrifying the hexagonal wire, but there are insulators you can buy & attach them to the outside of the coop so that when the coons comes around they get a "shocking" revelation.
    most any farm supply store would carry them...this is one that comes to mind.
