    WOW ... very nice!!! Bet you had a lot of fun (or sleepless night) designing the inside layout [​IMG] It looks like a Hilton!

    What is that floor material for the run? Did you build the whole thing from scratch? By yourself? Very impressive!

    Beautiful coop! Was your door inside the coop, the one in the first picture, difficult to make? I have been worrying about how difficult it will be to make a door in my run. I dont think it would be difficullt to make the rectangle, but to allow it to swing freely.

    Your coop looks PROFESSIONAL! My only question would be-with the concrete chainlink "run" area will they be kept always in it, or will they get freerange time? My birds love to scratch in the dirt. Just thinking the birds may preffer another scratching surface. Looks real easy to clean though [​IMG]
