    I just wanted to show off my coop to somone who might appreciate it. There aren't alot of chicken people around here. I bult everything myself except my husband had to help me frame in the door to get it level on my otherwise not perfectly level coop. It is 8 x 12 and under the roosts there is a 4 x 8 droppings pit. The nest boxes are OLD and were given to me free of charge. They are hinged at the top so to clean them I just lift the whole thing and prop it up. Yes they are probably overkill for my amount of chickens but I wouldn't dare cut into them.

    Bock bock, your coop is a beauty..
    looks a lot like mine, But I am needing a larger run hopefully
    with warmer days coming we can get to it.Like the way the run is connected do you have a door on the run to get into it?
    you did a great job.

    Good job. I was wondering if you had that many chickens to warrant that large of a nest box LOL But, I get your point. I wouldnt cut it up either. Very good job!!!
