    Still a few little things, but we moved the ladies in today.

    Opened the pet hole door, and they are exploring:

    When time permits, I will attempt to make my own page, and possibly enter the coop contest. But for now, I'm just a bit proud of my little playhouse coop. DH built the run, then had to go back to work out of town; I've finally finished my end of the deal.[​IMG]

    Looks almost exact to my setup. Very nice. What's the dog house for?? How many will you keep in there?

    The dog house has been their "home" while I got the playhouse done. I just took it out ... they don't know what to do with all that room [​IMG]

    We have 5 buff orpingtons, about 15 weeks old now. When our dogs are in the house, we let the ladies out into the yard or in the larger dog pen behind the coop.

    [​IMG] have to quit now and get ready for work!! But the ladies should be safe and dry when the rain moves through this afternoon... and have a lot more room than in that dog house!
