    After spending a month researching posts and pictures on this wonderful site I began building our first coop. I would like to thank everyone for all the great information that has been posted; it made it much easier to plan this whole process. I do have to mention mags2009 and thank you for the great pictures as I have "borrowed" your ideas. I will post more pictures when I have completed inside the coop and the run.

    Thanks for the comments. The coop is 8' x 10' and will house our 8 hens. There will be a section 4' x 8' just inside the doorway for feed and the door to the nesting boxes.

    Very nice job! I was questioning the insulated floor until I saw where you live. Sound construction. Good to see.
