    [​IMG] well, since I'm officially a chicken owner now, I thought I'd put my coop up for review. It's not finished yet. Pictures in next post... [​IMG]

    Looks good, is there ventilation up top?
    Something we are modifying in our first coop.

    nice job! I too am a newbie [​IMG]

    I second the ventilation idea. I put vents on each side of the coop....from what I read they are a really good idea.

    Taking the advice from an article in this website, there are two gable vents, two windows, and venting under the eaves.

    Great start, but I gotta say it...think more ventilation

    Also the base it's on is a great new home for a skunk or other varmits
