    First of all, I see nothing to laugh at- not in the least! This looks like a very adorable coop!! I think you should be proud of it! It turned out very well! And the bunnies are a sweet addition! [​IMG] Cute that they all cuddle together.

    That looks like a nice set-up! If you have a tarp over the run, I would wager that the chickens very rarely opt to go inside. I had no ideas bunnies like to play with chickens!

    Very awesome. I think you did a fantastic job. If I tried to build one it would not be liveable.

    Its fine the way it is.

    A thought tho ,

    Why not close the front in a little and put something kinda like a doggy door for them to go in.

    I've found out that dampness is an enemy.

    Anything can be turned into a coop as long as its cheap or FREE

    I lucked out slatemnt_farmer - here in Albuquerque, dampness is rarely any trouble [​IMG] Back in Va. (just moved to NM last year) - quite the opposite!!

    here in NC it seems to be a rain forest lately.


    My favorite thing to use for coops is pallets. They are plentiful! I've even seen people use them for larger things such as hay barns.
