    Nice work, congratulations! The girls look like they're enjoying it (say goodbye to the grass by week's end!).
    Love the artwork!

    Very nice!
    I have a very similar setup. Anyone have ideas to help the grass stick around? My husband jokes we're going to have to start letting the girls out in shifts.
    We have 4 LF & 8 1/2 bantams in a 24 foot X 24 foot run. Thinking about sectioning off a little area for the winter and reseeding the rest. What do you guys do?[​IMG]

    very nicely done.
    do the chicken have shade out in the pen area?
    I am not sure if you have netting over your pen. in the winter will the snow /ice load break it.
    i notice you put a perch for them in pen. they may try to fly out.
    i like the human door into the coop if u want to do a deep litter method it would be easy to put a 2x6 borad over the doorway and u would have to step over it.

    also u might want to build wire door to protect your food bin area, so racoons or bobcats or coyettes wont get into the food area.
