    My daughter and her husband just built their new home and she decided she wanted chickens; 4 Australorps I raised from chicks while her coop was being built by her FIL. The coop is so well built I don't think any predator can get in. I delivered her pullets to her last night and she is now sucked into the chicken addiction!

    Her father-in-law has done construction all his life and cuts no corners! Health issues have forced him to retire from building but he took on this "love" project and took his time so my daughter feels very blessed with her new coop!

    Beautiful, functional, predator-proof. Lucky chickens! I wanted a black Australorp, but couldn't find one in my area. I'm green with envy...hope she enjoys them!

    That is one gorgeous coop. Love the colour scheme too. How many in the coop? Now I gotta look up BAs and see how large they are!

    That looks like a very well thought out, convenient, secure, easy to use and access coop! I want a father in law like that!
