    Very nice and neat but you need ventilation.
    Also I hope the run will be more than chicken wire, coons love chicken wire because they go right thry it but it keeps the chickens in so they don't have to chase them as far.

    Very Nice! We are working on ours too.
    Can't wait to see your run. The Chicken "Palaces" on this site are truely inspirational. In fact, all of these amazing coops are stirring my imagination and therefore making my husband crazy. Everytime he cuts a board or pounds a nail I change the design -lol.

    There is ventilation. Square on the left side and pretty much the whole back of the coop cut out in a rectangle shape. There is also like 1/4" wire mesh underneath the chicken wire. There is 2 layers of wire there. Yes, we are planning on letting the kids paint it. That should be interesting.......LOL Thanks everyone! [​IMG]

    Cuase hubby messed up lol at first so it was just easier to put the correct wire on instead of taking it off. [​IMG]
