    All that's left is some painting and the trim (cream color, like the window box). I am so delighted! And, the chickie girls are safe and happy too.

    Great Coop. Do you have plans for this one? I have tried to get my hands on a set of plans for something like this and keep getting stuck.

    Quote:I bought the plans off the web from Dennis Harrison-Noonan at They are $35 for a set of plans, but I think it was well worth it. I made some alterations from the original plans, i.e., nest box on the outside, full size door for cleanout and adding removable wheels, but you can either follow them exactly or make changes yourself.
    I'm really happy with the way this came out and if I really wanted to, I could add up to 2 more chickie girls (total of 5) without a problem, especially since I let them free range when I'm home.

    Here's another pic, from the side. You can see the wheels I put on just before I moved it.
    [​IMG] It's really a great plan and if you're handy you can alter it to suit your needs, bigger, smaller, longer run, etc.
    Hope this helps. Good luck.
