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:

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

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 !!
