Thanks everyone! WOW, this community is impressive!!! Here are some more pictures, thanks for the warning on TN being "Predator Central". We hear coyotes at night, wake up to 2 or 3 crows staring at our coop, a stray cat who set up camp nearby. I hope that my design doesn't fail in keeping them from being chicken-food anytime! They feel cozy enough to roost out in the open and that seems to be a good thing. Here is our chickens profile page! with Pics if anyone is interested, . . https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=99814 My wife and I are very pleased to see there is a middle TN meetup and a dedicated community!
