    Are the squares in drawing 1' each?
    Looks pretty good to me.
    Can't wait to see it go up...hopefully you will post pics of build here?

    Yup, 1 square = 1 foot.
    Will definitely post pix!

    Woke to rain, but the platforms are built, so hopefully they'll be back to start the walls!

Also the finalized plan (drawn up last night!) with the window on the back wall set at floor level for easy sweep out of the coop!

The shed is on the left, the run on the right and the coop in between. The window at floor level is for cleaning out the coop — just shovel it right out into the wheel barrow!

    I've got 17 chicks, but will thin the herd to 10 or 11!

    Second picture shows the poop door (window, actually!) where the poop goes out!
    Third shows the nest boxes which sit in the adjoining shed.
