    (I think this is my favorite thing- the entire door/screen pop out so that I can sweep everything out and hose it down )

    This is after the window is popped out, the base comes out in a separate piece )



    I am thrilled, and so are the chickens !!!!!!!!! It was a lot of work and seemed to take forever, but totally worth it.
    When the big one comes and our house falls down, we can move into the coop !

    Very cute coop... Reminds me of a pool house almost... Kudos! [​IMG]

    Q though.. What is the roof on that thing? I can't tell what kind of covering it is. Sure isn't shingles though.

    Quote:It is still covered in plastic. I think I going to put solar panels on it. I think I can provide all the electricity I need for the back part of my yard.
    If not I want to put on a thatched roof.

    I did a lot of research, read this board like a maniac. We travel a lot and can be cone for a couple of weeks at a time. If I was going to have chickens, I needed to be sure they would be safe, secure, and as low maintenance as possible. Otherwise it wouldn't be fair to them.
