    Quote:Beautiful coop Dooner! I love the egg boxes built into the people door. And the pipe around the roost - two ideas I might need to borrow.
    Thx!

    Covered run. Added a small coop for two D'Uccle hens along the back wall of the run.
    Two pop doors so I can partition off a section under the poop board and put chickens there
    while they're growing out, have a wire pen that I set up on the run side for them. I've
    found more ways to squeeze more chickens into the same square footage!! [​IMG]

    Inside view before the nest boxes were installed, and after. Proud of them since I built them myself!

    Nice set up knock kneed Hen. I love the green and white... I just bought the green paint today to paint door and trim green, the rest of the coop is going to be white.

    Had a thought about poop boards...

    A friend of mine gave me a cage for my 2 older chickens. I didn't want to use a wire bottom and a piece of plywood would not fit through the door so I bought a couple of rubber bathtub mats (with the suction cups on the bottom) and put them on the bottom over the wire floor and then covered them with pine shavings. This can be done for poop boards too, without having to worry about trays sliding around. They can be easily rolled up, dumped out and hosed off for cleaning. Just a thought.
