    We bought a prebuilt minibarn,painted the minibarn, and installed windows,chicken door, and vents, then made a roost area. hung the feed and water, put in the electricity and the fence. Check it out..oh and it is a 10x8

    [​IMG] this has the coop in the background before we painted it.

    [​IMG]putting up the fencepost, the windows and vents are already in.

    [​IMG]the chicken door, we tried a ramp idea, it was too slick, worked more like a slide!

    [​IMG]the inside, nice and roomy for 12 birds.

    Looks good, enjoy your chickens! A lot of people will actually use the nest boxes like yours but build wooden frames around them so the chicken can have stacked boxes.

    Very cool. I predict it won't be too long before you are adding more chickens!

    Nice setup!
    Looks like 14ga 2"x4" welded wire fence with solid forged T-posts...can get it at any farm store.
