    I would like to paint my coop like a red barn with white trim. We are using some 6 pane windows out of an old wood house and putting window flower boxes under them.Was wondering if anyone had there chicken coop or pen painted in a special way or design. What sort of signs or yard decor do you have around it. Thanks!

    Your ideas for your coop sound really pretty! I love the classic barn red color.

    Have you had a chance to check out the Coop Designs pages yet? There are so many cool ideas there for decorating the coop.

    We did ours in cedar shakes. Our house already looks like a barn so we did the coop a little different. I found an old tin sign that reads "Rise and Shine" for the door. The 2 windows in the coop are 12 pane also from an old house. It has a metal roof.
