    Hi, so after several weary and hot months building this coop and run.....with lots of help from BYC' rs....we are just a gnats ass away from being done. Here are some of the upgrades, finished ideas we started with and new ideas we incorporated into our coop. It has truely been a labor of love and well,... rewarding. For those of you whom have not gone to our page, please visit it when time allows, and see the progression of what we tried to do. Almost all of our ideas came from this site and we are deeply thankful for all that made comments and suggestions. We are loving our girls. Oh, yes....we are already planning a new project. A smaller coop and run for Polish, Silkies and Frizzles. WE ARE HOOKED Erik
    [​IMG] Roof finsihed, trim installed...so no chance of water getting to our girls.

    [​IMG] Shade cloth over part of the open run(has chain link top), to keep setting sun from heatng up area girls love to hang out in.

    [​IMG] Trim finished on roof

    [​IMG] Chciken nipples being used by Princess ( White Silkie) all of the rest use them as well. So easy....we love our nipples.

    [​IMG] Sink w/ foot control is finally done so DW can clean up anything right in covered run. Very conveninet.....she love it.

    [​IMG] Mist/fan system we installed yesterday is working flawessly to lower temperature about 20 degrees here in Louisiana. Wow, the girls love it and it gives us so much peace of mind.

    [​IMG] and finally, a shot of the front door and new landscaping wife did this am before it got to hot.

    Would like to thank everyone that followed our progress, gave great suggestions and comments and also the whole BYC family for being so dedicated and helpful. Yes, Chickens are truly addictive. More to come with new coop and run.
    Erik
