    Nice start! Are you planning on some windows and more ventilation?? That would be my only suggestion! I love having my coop off the ground! Gives them lots of shade!

    Quote:There is a window on the backside and ventilation under the eves of the roof from front to back. We took cut the sides short and used screen to vent it. Works great!

    thank you, my DH built it from a picture on here. with some adaptions. I am very happy with it though we are looking into an upright shed for a larger one. going to turn the whole corner of the backyard into a chicken run.

    They just started laying last week. Very happy with them [​IMG]
