    That is nice! I'd love to have something like that down here due to our extremely hot summers.
    Nice job!

    Yep. I am going to put some box fans in the top during the summer.

    The plans came from MPC.

    Thanks

    Very cool! I'm wondering, why do you have two small coops and not one big one?

    The original plans from MPC were the single coop. I decided to build my coop on a concrete pad that was already on the
    farm. I realized that there was room for more than one coop, so we built 2 side by side and linked them with an isle.
    I guess I could have built one, but I was new to the process, and just stuck to the plans. One advantage is that I could have
    2 different breeds, if I planned to raise chickens, but I have 2 mixed flocks of egg layers.

    I really like the two separate coop idea, and your run is the bomb

    Gave me a great idea now, how I could do my roof
