    Thanks a bunch...................... the deal is it is so much nicer to care for them when you don't have to worry about wet stinky run's and having to bend over to get into a pen. Having all the feed in seperate custom mix barrels is also a plus, and if any of them ever need any special attention the stuff I need is right at hand, I do like it and plan for another exspansion is in the works.

    Here is the outside.

    6chickens in St. Charles :

    I love, love, love Fireguy56's interior, and plan to model my upgrades after that, with the pooptrays above the nestbox openings and a choice of roosts up higher than everything else (a few of my chickens love to be the highest beings in the universe). But here's mine, currently, though this pic was from April:

    ...and the whole 6ftX6ft coop:

    The dumb thing here, is the chickens exit via the big door, walk around to the hoop run and then we lock up the hoop run if we're leaving them outside for awhile unsupervised. You can't tell we got the chickens THEN wondered how to house them, can you? [​IMG]

    Plastic nest boxes now, replaced the wooden ones infested with mites. The panelled walls are photographed to look like wood, but are plasticky, intended for use in basement remodels, and are mold resistant. They were on sale, end-cap returns at Lowes'. The few wooden bits still exposed are washed regularly with Adams Flea and Tick dog shampoo, dried and dusted with permethrin poultry and garden dust. Mites and fleas are big problems in our river valley, wooded region of northern Illinois.

    6chickens, I love how you have cleverly suspended that boat off the top of your hen house! Nice touch! [​IMG]

    You all are so creative!

    Your chickens are so lucky!

    We've never built anything in our life, so this was a challenge for us.

    Here's mine:
