    This is my coop update. I posted awhile back my platform but I've been slow with updates since. Roof isn't attached yet, it's just sitting up there until I buy brackets tomorrow. What color should I paint it?

    You should go with colors that match the surroundings so it doesn't stick out like a soar thumb.

    just the colors... I'm in San Antonio and it is apparently UTSA's colors too, but I didn't know that when I chose the colors.

    By the way Cupman, your construction looks great! For something more subtle, I had also considered blue and grey.

    I did the cottage yellow and white color scheme. [​IMG] I have black shutters that are going on, too.

    We've done all of ours (four of them) the color of our house.

    Still; I'm a nut for yellow!

    If I had thought about it ahead of time, our coop and run would have been Auburn orange and blue. Instead, we went with more conventional dark red and white, not thinking that we were making it 'Bama colors. Oh well, Roll Tide too!

    Beers y'all,
