    you can see on the right, the building came with the house and is very old. but i kinda fixed it up... not really nice, but does the job. i keep food and nests in there so the goats cant get in [​IMG]


    the coop on the left is my very first coop!! i know its not much but i love it, and so do my chicks!! [​IMG]



    the second pic is on the "chick run" where the baby chicks go. i have netting on the top of it so that hawks cant get in and the chicks cant get out and get hurt. they are on six acres, but i dont want the chicks around the grown up chickens and horses and goats at only five weeks

    what do yall think? any thing eles i should add, take away

    also, is the coop too open? maybe i should close it up a bit. im in tx so it gets hot. i just dont want them rained on too much

    Hi,
    That is a nice coop. I was thinking of using the clear plastic for the roofing, but in NH the winters are way too cold.

    Good luck with the chickens,
    Ed
