my girlfriend and I wanted chickens so here it is. I still have to backfill the trench and trim out the screen with some more purple and gold.

You definitely need more purple and gold! Go Tigers! Really nice coop and I love your signage. Do you have hardware cloth up between the rafters so that nothing can get in? It's hard to see from the pics. The wood looks lovely. What did you use?

LOVE IT! Can you take pictures of the inside of the coop area? If I am going to steal your plans I need more details

And, personally, I would have gone red and black, but no need to start that fight....

only the rustic part was made from palate bords. the rest is treated 2x4 with plywood roof. The palates only saved us a few sheets of plywood but we like the rustic look. everythign was painted with dark oak deck stain. Instead of hardware cloth i blocked in the rafters with 2x4 cut to match the roof angle. no predators over marble size can get it, hopefully.
