    Hi all. Here is the coop I made and the pullets that now call it home. Although it's set up in the yard, I will be adding a run that is bigger than the expose screened in run that you can see in the pictures. W[​IMG]

    That is really wonderful! What nice work! Just don't put any more chickens in it than you already have-it could get a bit cramped if you do, but that said, I really love it! I see you have Barred Rocks and Rhode Island Reds. I especially love my Barred Rock girls. Enjoy!

    What a neat coop--did you design it yourself? How cool! [​IMG]

    Where are the feeders and waterers going to go... underneath, or inside?

    The waterers and feeder I put underneath. They do take up some room, I went with a 2 gallon galvi waterer and a feeder that holds 12 lbs. A may go with smaller ones. I plan on building a run for them outside of the coop shown, to let them run around, but thats only when I'm home to watch over things.

    Very cool! How do they get upstairs? Do you have a ladder for them? Are those the nesting boxes upstairs in the back?

    I'm new to the forum and am excited about posting, can you tell? [​IMG]

    The ladder is now in place and the hens enter up through the bottom of the coop. The last step they have to jump up a bit but they don't seem to mind. Those are the nest boxes and the roost bar. I was thinking of adding a roost bar that will be higher than the one pictured. It's all trial and error!
