    I am new to keeping chickens, and live in a fairly urban part of town so I wanted a coop that the neighbors wouldn't mind looking at. A few have commented that they like the coop and the idea of having chickens around. I am sure there are less expensive ways to keep the egg layers, but I liked the clean look of this design.

    I made a few modifications to the Noonan-Harrison plans by adding a clean out door, and instead of a plexiglass window I went with a more simple mesh window/door for ventilation on the rear elevation.

    This only my second post on BYC, I wanted to thank you all for all the information I am getting from your posts.

    Terrific job! The clean out door is a great idea for that coop.
    No wonder your neighbors like the idea of having chickens.... the coop is quaint and just what everyone would like to have.

    I love that coop! I am searching for one right now that will work in the winter. We just don't have time to make one or we would.

    Looks like I'll be going to Kentucky soon to pick one up...I'm having no luck in Indiana.

    Your coop looks awesome! [​IMG]
