Me and my other half were at the feed store a couple of weeks ago. We were talking to the owner about finally being finished on our coop now that our girls are almost ready to lay. She made the comment that "some people are so over the top that they build coops that look like mini versions of their house". We both immediately started laughing. Yup, we're over the top but managed to use a lot of re-purposed stuff including pallets, fence posts, 2 liter bottles and leftover paint from recently painting the house. The ventilation doors on the front and nest box doors on the right were $5 bucks a piece at habitat for humanity. I'll be back with more photos including the solar powered interior!
