    Finally finished the coop. Chicks will be delivered next week. Can not wait for fresh eggs again. Let me know what you think. I have not put my food and waterer in there yet or shavings in coop. Going to wait until chicks are old enough to move in.

    WOW!! Nice. Love your roost idea, I may steal it for my coop. I'm having trouble figuring out where and how to put one in and still be able to clean it easily. That may solve my roost dilemma.

    Wow, really nice work! I agree though... there will be a larger coop in the future when chicken math kicks in! LOL
    Good assortment of chicks coming. Those breeds were exactly what I started my flock with

    I see you have a light fixture both inside and outside, are they for heat or light?

    Currently going through a redesign process for after we harvest and restart the flock so 'acquiring' ideas where I can find them. Very nice, clean design there.
