    DH is a welder by trade, and is the best on this side of town. He's not so good at carpentry. [​IMG]

    He made me a nice arc style coop and run out of angle iron and expanded metal and a small bit of plywood. He's also made me a coop out of 2x4's and plywood. To tell the truth, I really love his welded work much more than the wooden one.

    I wonder if any of you have any pics that you can post of metal coops that you have come across.

    I'll have to post a pic and show you what I mean. I guess the idea of a metal coop is one that will get too hot, as would be the case if it were enclosed. Let me find some pics I think I may have some on this computer. BRB

    Edited to add: here's a pic of the one he just finished, I love it, and I have babies in it right now. Of course it looks a bit different with plywood enclosing the open side, I need to get a pic of it as it stands in my backyard.
