    wow... for a scrap coop that looks better than what I could do with new wood, plans, and a prayer! ;)

    Than you :) my neighbor works construction so he had some great scrap in his burn pile, I did base it off of Purina Mills coop plan http://poultry.purinamills.com/stellent/groups/public/documents/web_content/ecmp2-0160674.pdf but I needed to alter it for my landscape and my run design and I prefer the pitched roof and concrete blocks instead of wood to rest on because of the potential for termites in my area. makes it easier for me to move as I clear out the brush and fence my yard in for free rangers.

    Thanks Anna
    I'll post more pics tomorrow I haven't done much with it this weekend running low on nails and next week is pay week :) I've added a play area so my wife ad I can interact with the chickens and they can have a little more room to range supervised and replaces a roost I broke with a pine limb from the trees I've trimmed near the coop.
