    My new coop. I've never built one before and got most of the info from here on BYC. Thanks to everyone for this site and wonderful resource for info for a newbie. I have to finish up the wire around the run, hang the water and feed, cut another window before it gets hot but the new hens seem to like it with 2/3 on the 1st morning after getting 3 hens (our 1st ever chickens) :) and in the new coop and 3/3 on the 2nd morning.

    Nicely done, i like the covered run part, excellent for outdoor feeding and dry areas for dust bathing.

    Very Nice, the egg door looks to be the perfect height. Do you have ducks or chickens only? I ask bcz that ramp looks like quite an incline.

    Here is much better angle but it's free standing Until I finished the wire around the bottom of the coop then I'm going to remove the plywood and attach it.
