    Sorry about the night picture, but its all i had.
    I put this together last year (so i know it isnt going to burn the whole neighborhood down haha.)
    The chiminea even after burning 3 hours is still able to be touched by hand so it doesnt get THAT hot, just enough to warm up the chippies.
    the bigger coop has 2 blue swede drakes, an Ameraucana hen and a silver laced Wyandotte hen; the smaller coop has 4 Serama.
    during the day when they free-range and its cold out, they just lay around it squacking about how much cooler (warmer [​IMG] ) they are than the neighbors chips.
    just a thought... and 2 small logs will burn nearly through the night in that thing.
