    MSbear will be proud. Her husband builds very nice coops. I love their Corolla coop. I talked to her a while back about this design for a breeders pen.

    Quote:I belive you make a ramp on the bottom so that the chickens can come in and out. I'm going to make 3 levels in this coop.

    That's a really great coop design! I think that will work out well for you.

    (Somewhat unrelated: I forgot about those beautiful Rosecombs in the pic at the bottom of that coop page... Those are some NICE birds!!).
