    Finally.. The coop and run are done. Pretty much. A few hardware issues but I have some temporary solutions that I will pay more attention to in the Summer! I'm pooped!
    I am pretty happy with it although I ran into so many problems... I'm not much of a carpenter but I have such vision! ha ha.
    So I'll post a before pic (when it was a doghouse) and an after.

    (theres a nest box on the right and a food/water area on the left)...for some reason I didn't get a good picture of this. Oh, and the ramp was just temporary.

    Also, if you could help me identify any of these bantams that would be great! I can tell which ones are roos and by going to the Ideal Poultry website (where they came from) I think I've gotten close. Oh, I figured out that the giant pullet is a red or brown sex link. I think they lay brown eggs! Yay.
    Thanks for looking!

    Looks good! May want to rethink the hardware cloth in the bottom. I hear it's hard on their feet. (Unless you are going to lay some bedding down over it.

    You are a better carpenter than me. I never would have gotten the nestboxes to stay attached to the side

    I thought it might not be the best option but i was worried about air flow since I live in East Texas. I can always put straw on the bottom.. I have a lot of it. Thanks!
