    Here is the hen house we adapted from the buildeazy plan. It is 6' x 8' with a linoleum-covered floor. It has windows on the north, south and east sides. The window screens are covered with hardware cloth. There is about a 4" opening between the tops of the walls and the roof under the eaves that we've fitted hardware cloth to keep out wild birds, etc.

    That is a really beautiful set up. I love the outside acess to the nest boxes. Your girls seem to really enjoy it.
