    Caleb,
    I especially like the sign by the chicken door, and other decorations you have added. What kinds of chickens are those that you have, looks a little bit like my flock with Welsummers, Barred Rocks, and Buff Orpingtons, but what are the ones with lots of white? And the mostly black ones?

    Very nice. I would however paint for sure, more to seal the wood and protect it from the rain and what not.
