    I have been working on this for a couple of weeks. There are still a few details with the coop left to do. I need to add the stick on vinyl floor, finish the feeder, and add the cable to pull up the pop door. Then it will be time to start the run.

    We are new to raising chickens and wanted something that would look nice in the yard. Our plan is for it to house 3-4 bantams.

    Please feel free to make suggestions. I want to make sure it is right before we add the chickens.

    Thanks,
    Chad

    Nicely done Chad!

    My only question is if there is cross-ventilation.

    Quote:I added a vent to the back wall to help. Also, where the roof meets the wall, there is about 1/2 gap on both sides. I figured I would cover them with hardware cloth and leave them open. With the side window, and the top of the front door open, I am more worried about if I should cover them to keep the wind out.

    OMG! That's adorable! Fantastic! Lovely! I especially like the roof -- Is that paint on there or stain?

    Quote:That looks good. You may want to cover the windows partially for the winter . . . or MAKE SHUTTERS!!! [​IMG] But cold air is supposed to be better than lack of proper ventilation.
