    I bought this bird house for dh and I think if he used it as a model when he builds my coop it would be sooooooooooo neat!! lol

    I think that would work nice!

    My coops are built in a house type design with a pointed roof and a front door with chicken wire enclosing it. I hang signs on the baby chick coop that says "Nursery" and the hen house coop says "Eggs For Sale 10 C a Dozen" and the roo coop says "Cockadoodle Den" LOL I hang wooden window panes up on them to give it that housy look. Then hang hanging baskets off of them and plant flowers around. YOu can get so creative with a coop! LOL

    If you want a big-sized one for your coop, good luck finding big enough pine cones... LOL
