    We got chickens in March, and began this project when the weather broke.

    The outside run, though they free range nearly all the time.

    Inside...hopefully the scenery will inspire them to lay all year long [​IMG]

    Did I do alright? There'll be better nest boxes, but we don't need them yet, and more roosts, but have to get back to the beach for more driftwood!

    Ohmigosh, that coop is a RIOT!!! Love it. Your zepplin/airplane shelf reminded me a little of the yellow submarine, but red. Awesome job, you obviously put a lot of love into your coop.

    Wow. And to think I just went with boring white and a little purple trim. That is a great coop, very whimsical.
