    The floor has a layer of hardware cloth down, secured to the foundation.

    Over that is a layer of gravel:

    And then I back filled it to the top row of cinder blocks:

    And not pictured is the vent along the bottom edge of the roof, also secured with hardware cloth. :D The shingles are on now, too, and I've moved the fence so the pop door can be used. Just a touch-up with paint and adding a skirt, and then it's complete!

    pipd - Very nice! And a lot of hard work :D [​IMG]

    I really like the way you did the floor with the buried hardware cloth and a deep base. That will make a GREAT base for deep litter and you will probably get some worms in there for the girls too!

    I have to ask... what brand and color is your red paint? I really like the "barn red" with all the black in it.

    Hi everyone, I am back from South Dakota. Crazy long exhausting work. Glad to be home. Had an absolutely horrible experience with my chickens while gone. Lost 2 of my rare Blue Ameracaunas and 1 BCM. My coop is a disaster. My 'fake' eggs are missing along with my egg gathering basket. And my chickens are not laying anymore.
    My neighbor came and mowed my pasture without asking and now not sure what to do about our calf.
    2 of our turtles are MIA; 2 that we have had for like 8 years too.
    NO clue on any of that, but very puzzling disturbing.
    Hopefully though now that I am home....things can get back to normal.

    Guess you just really cannot leave your animals in care if someone else. :-/
