    Our other coop as known as the abandoned one had some of our chickens in it but then he disease came and you know the rest but the coop was predator proof so the chickens could live in there. What I am getting at is that they could live in it even though it wasn't done. Some of the chickens were Dominic and Bella that lived in the coop. My dad finally had some spare time (they are getting a lot of work in thank god) so we put on the tar paper and roofing panels yesterday along with the drip edge (the silver things going accross the top). I will keep you updayted with pics on the process of getting it done. Here a few pics of the coop and run. [​IMG] Btw my dad designed this coop by himself. *Maxx running outside to take more pics*

    We had to put these pieces of wood under the coop so the chickens could nnot get out that way. We are putting the panels on like we did the other coop that you can see on my BYC coop page.

    Thanks. We are actually going to get this coop done the open the runs ( they are right next to each other) and let them lay and roost in the coop of their choosing. I will keep you updated on that too. [​IMG]

    That would be nice. Do you have to consider predators?

    Well today by myself I cut the chicken wire and extended the runs so they can go in both now. [​IMG] Here are some pics of the chickens destroying all of the grass that is all over in the other run.

    This is one spot where I cut the chicken wire to where they get through into the other run.

    Neat looking job. Where are the vents? Are they concealed in the roof overhang?
