    Finally the coop is going in next to the run. DH moved it all by himself yesterday. He got from the garage to the garden gate. He thinks the two of us will be able to get it to its foundation today. I have to work a half day. Hopefully we can get it done today.

    Here is the garden where the coop and run will be. I am trying to hide it from the neighbors (my next door neighbors are fine with it). It's the others I don't know that will probably have a hissy.

    Here is the run inside the garden.

    Here is the coop when it was still in the garage.

    I will post some pics of it when it gets in place.

    Oh I just love your coop. That looks like a real garden coop. I love the window and box with flowers. Your chickens are very lucky.[​IMG]

    did you build the coop? I LOVE it!!!! Need something like that to put in mine. I don't see how anybody could complain about your set up it's beautiful! (sorry but if your chickens are like mine your flowers in your flower box might need to become fake ones or they wont last! lol! my ladies tear up all my flowers!)

    No, we did not build the coop--a man from Craigslist who builds doghouses built it. I just told him the dimensions. He only charged $125.00. We did put in a roost and cut the window out, which was no biggie. DH did build the run. I'm wondering about the window box--they will not have outside access to it--they will have to peck through the screen from inside the coop to get to the flowers.

    Neat little coop, bet the birds will love it. Beat they can't wait to free range that beautiful fenced in area. How many of the windows open for ventilation?

    could you also post an inside pic of the little coop... I'm thinking I may need to attempt one like it. It's adorable and just what I need to go inside my new pen.
