    i finally built my coop!! it is pretty great i think.. im looking for some feed back. it is 4 feet wide 4 feet tall and 8 feet long. it is very solid. i have that hardwire cloth stuff on the floor of the cage and on the top and chicken wire all around the sides including the door. the little coop house is something i found at my job the door slides closed and has a very heavy roof. this cage is going to house a pekin duck and a silkie chicken. i think it will be fine lol

    back of run:

    Hey I think that looks great. Are you going to paint the coop after you fix the roof?[​IMG]
