    I so wanted to call my coop the Loopy Coop, but it is known as Ghetto Coop. I made it out of an old coop I bought that had a handful of issues, a LOT of hardware cloth and a bunch of scrap wood I found along side the road. I love it. The yellow is a bit harsh, but I'm hoping it weathers nicely.

    So there you have it. My scrappy, but practical coop. [​IMG]

    The yellow did it nicely.
    Turned out nice IMO.
    Chickens look happy. Kid looks happy.
    All is well.
    Might need to call it Sunny Days Inn.

    It's a lot of really bright yellow. But it will fade and such, get dirty, peel...

    And it is working great for us so that's what matters.

    Looks like you did a nice job putting it together. I think the yellow looks good. Enjoy it! [​IMG]
