    That is a wonderful use of materials. Turned out rustic and cool looking. [​IMG]

    Have you thought about some windows to let light and a breeze in?
    I have windows in mine and in the summer it is a great help in keeping the coop cooler. I put larger windows on the south for the winter sun as well.

    A window certainly is a good suggestion and a future possibility. It certainly would be easy enough to frame out given the structure. I'm not worried too much about the light and breeze as the slats do have small gaps to allow both.

    I will probably add a window to the front for the afternoon sun to get in. Maybe in the spring. I'll post an update when it's done! Thanks for the suggestion!

    Very nice, I'm building a coop as I write (well, I am taking a break at this moment!) reusing found/salvaged materials, mostly redwood decking. I have gained some good insights from your work!

    Thanks!

    PS-If the fox "decimated" your flock of 12, that would be the loss of exactly 1.2 birds...
