    Just finished building my first chicken coop. It is the home of my 8 Buff Orpingtons. The coop is 5 by 6 feet and the run is 5 by 16 feet.

    Great job!! I love how you called it your first coop. You know you will be building more. We started with one. Now we are up to 4 and 1 hoop house. Good luck next year on your 2nd coop.

    I love it when people post really good pics of the framing. It lets a beginner carpenter like me get a good look at different ways to put things together.

    Good job!

    Wow, it took me a while to realize it was on WHEELS. That is great. Can you slide the run across the ground? You did a very nice job. My only concern might be the weight of snow on the roof of the run, but I don't know much about that; it doesn't really snow where I live.
