    Thought I would share a pic of the coop my DH built me last summer for my first flock.
    He made it out of reclaimed gym flooring for a school, covered it completely with chicken wire (even under the roof shingles). It houses 6-7 hens comfortably.

    The hens are usually running around the yard but if I am not here the stay in.

    It looks nice and safe. Good chicken mom making them stay in when your gone too. I do the same. Thanks for sharing.
