    I am new to this chicken thing. So this is my first attempt at a coop. It has worked so far.

    I built it out of a tile crate.

    Here is a completed pic

    It looks nice, but the racoons and possums will eat through the green netting you have, very quickly.. change it fast~~

    yes, get that netting off and put on half inch hole size hardware cloth. Your chickens are at risk from even a hungry cat with that plastic netting.

    And please get rid of that chicken wire and use hardwire cloth 1/2" is the largest opening you want on anything open.
