    Looks great! Keep up the good work.
    Are you using Screen or some kind of fine hardware cloth there?

    Almost done...hopefully by noon today! Yesterday, I bought the wrong size wire, so had to use a little creativity to make it work...

    Thank you gapeach717! Actually the coop to the left is my main chicken coop...I'm planning to use the new coop for the 7wk chicks I got...for that reason I decided to make the entrance through the main coop. My hope is to eventually have them all together!

    This is a sketch of what I'm hoping my coop will look once I'm all done!
