    Cute door! We are currently building a larger coop (8.5x8.5) with attached run. I'll get a thread up soon. I'm searching for ideas. We are on slightly unleveled ground and I am deciding whether to bury wire or fold out along the bottom. What has worked for you?

    Same here. It took a big rock bar & plenty of sweat from the hubby to get 16" for the 4 main posts of the coop. He does not want to do any more digging [​IMG]
