We thought it was a lovely little thing for our then 4 girls (we lost one to some thing that came out of the woods into our back yard). We also own a small shetland pony that runs loose on the farm. Well she took to rubbing her neck or butt on the coop and now it has to be rebuilt. The house is still good but this time we will use 2 x 4's building it and .... no we can't hit Zora! But I will build that bigger day time chicken run around the the coop and keep her and whatever it was that came into the back yard, away from it.
