    Well, we finished it. We still have some finishing touches and fine tuning to do yet. We decided to put in 2 doors on opposite corners for easier cleaning. I figure with size ( 8×6 ) we can stuff 12 birds in there being how they free range, but only plan on having 6 at any one time. My only concern is whether or not I have enough ventilation. I think so though.[​IMG][/IMG]

    The Red sexlink has been laying for about a month now, and the one Lakenvelder started laying yesterday. Boy, those sure are small eggs. I am hoping the other Lakenvelder starts laying soon.

    You have plenty of ventilation my chickens only have one long window with a screen and their gate is chain link except in winter during the night they have a normal door. Anyway looks great.
