    Here are a few pics of my coop so far. It is 8' x 4' and will house 5 barred rocks. Not sure if I am going to put a pitched roof or just a flat roof.

    So far so good! Are those a couple of nest boxes you can get to from the outside?

    Go for a pitched roof, I did a flat one on mine and rain pooled on top making the paint peel so I had to put on a pitched one.[​IMG]

    Quote:Yes that is a nest box without a cover so far. It is flush with the inside but built on the outside to save space. Right now it is just one big next box so I will see if I need to divide it into 2 later.

    I like sloped roofs, gable is my favorite. I just like the look of it, so I vote for slanted, although you could use a sheet of plywood to cover it flat and put corrugated plastic or metal on the top, just an idea. Do u have pictures of what it will look like?

    Only picture I have is in my head! Just building from plans I put together on paper. I took bites and pieces from a few different coop plans.
