    We stole our coop idea from several BYC'ers and named ours Coop De Ville, because it is the Cadillac of chicken coops.
    My niece is helping supervise her uncle Travis...


    Too many chiefs working on framing

    The coop gets cedar siding with the help of our best friend, Darren

    A proud moment...

    Our nieces love our chickens

    This is a lovely looking coop, well built above ground and great materials; most photos speak volumes for themselves. I just miss something to deter diggers - unless the first photo with a little trench was meant to indicate that you did sink hardware cloth or equivalent before you started (in any case, more explanation needed).

    I sure like the cedar. And your hens look so good up there on the roost.
