    Hi,
    I finally am taking the time to post my chicken coop construction project I completed in the backyard. I got the idea off some photos off of this site and basically tailored it to my needs. I really didn't have any blue prints per say but just generally had an idea of what size I wanted it to be in terms of space due to limits within the back property line. I use sand as a flooring in the pen area and pine shavings in the roost house.

    Here are some photos I'd like to share of the construction:

    I did have one observation though (and it could just be the way the camera angle is) It looks as though the ground has a slope to it which normally would not be a problem. I see though that the roof slopes the opposite way. It looks like when it rains that the water will run off the roof and right back into the pen. Dont know if it will be a problem or not, but looks like it might.
