    I made one big coop and divided it in the middle. I put a door on each end for the chickens and a double door on the back. The bottom is made of wire so there is vertually no cleaning.

    Loove it!!

    I had a similar set up once. You've probably thought of this already......it was too drafty in there because of my wire floor, so I simply stacked a couple of straw bales underneath. Thanks for sharing! Very motivational![​IMG]

    Quote:Technically its the fence you see in front doubled- Its about 1 inch holes. We had allot of left over fence so we just used that.

    so its probably 1inch by 2inch hardwire mesh? have you had problems with mess collecting on the wire or does it all pretty much drop through?

    Quote:Yes but I lined the two layers up to make smaller holes. It has stayed clean and worked very well. I f I get time I'll take pics of the inside for you later Today.
