Hi everyone!

My husband and I just built our first coop for our young australorps.

It's 6' x 10' with a 8' x 12' roof. We partially copied the design from the Cage Mahal on the coop design pages. (Thanks!)

We're still trying to think of a name, maybe something to do with it being lakeside. Suggestions would be appreciated!

I wish I had taken some pics before this point


We built most of it in the boat house.

Here's the site:


Right after we moved it out and started putting roof supports on:




Finished!







The back:




Inside:



Our recycled cat litter box nesting box:



Pophole door opens from the outside:





The window:





They seem to like it!




Sable loves to watch them, and wishes she could get in to sniff and lick them to death!

Looks great! That brown is a great color for blending in with the surroundings, I really like it.

Very nice coop...one of the best I have seen!!

Love the way you showed the predator proof ground cover wire before setting the coop in place...such a better way.....



.... as opposed to the hard way...digging 4 trenches after the coop was finished....like I did !!
