    Debating whether or not to put in a door into the coop, i like it open and i like that they are able to come and go to the run...

    Its about 7 feet tall, 7 or 8 feet wide and 12 feet deep....The coop itself is 4 feet deep and the run 8 feet!

    How many chickens will you keep in there?

    A mandoor with a little chicken door (doggy door?) would probably be best. It would allow you in and keep bad weather out.

    Sorry, but I gotts say it.....Hope a coon doesn't find you.

    I see you're in WA. You may want a door when the weather gets colder.

    If that's chicken wire on the run, I'd definitely lock them up at night. Chicken wire is useless against predators.

    Very nice coop, cute!

    definately fix you a door there - and if possible, at the bottom fix a chicken door - so its a gillotine type door where you can just go out in the mornings and pull a string or chain up from outside the wire and tie off, without having to go inside the run each morning and evening to lock and unlock them.
