    My coop is almost done! Most of the major work is done, just needs some finishing trim, ramps and at some point when the budget allows, automatic doors. I also want to put a built in brooder in my coop, but that will need to wait a month or two.

    I have three sectioned runs. This is the right hand side.

    The inside of the coop is sectioned off into two halves. There is a chicken door in the middle that I can block off when trying to integrate new chicks. This is the left side:

    and this is the right side:

    The left side run: (don't look at the construction mess, we just finished this half tonight!)

    and my baby pen area:

    Once the babies are big enough to join the general population all I need to do is open the door on the left side.

    I left four feet of space in the front of the coop for food storage and supplies. On the left side is where I am going to build a built-in brooder.

    I still need to finish the hardware cloth on the bottom. That is my project for tomorrow.

    Thank you! I wish I could take credit for most of the work but I can't, my neighbor is the builder who did all the major building.

    I love it. You've used the space really well. It's versatile.
    I'm jealous, too!

    Great job! [​IMG]
