    Love it! I just got a bunny hutch to convert. No cute roof like yours but otherwise the same type of shape. Now I am inspired. What is that floor covering you are using?

    I just use plain old sand. I love it. I have an old kitty litter scoop and in the mornings when I let them out, I scoop out the poop and throw it in the compost. No shavings mess, no hay mess, cheap, takes ten seconds. All good.

    I noticed some ventilation under the nest boxes. looks like it could be drafty.

    Really nice coop though, good job

    Quote:I know, I didn't want to interrupt the look of the front by cutting holes and adding ventilation there. You can't see it well, but the sides and back are mostly vinyl siding. I wasn't sure how to cut through it and keep it water safe, so I added cut outs on each side of the coop where I could. If it's windy or freezing, I figure I can just cover them. Luckily we live in the Pac NW and it's pretty warm and wet most of the year. I am also going to make a screen for one of the doors in the front for summer time. By screen, I mean hardware clothed window that covers the whole opening so I can leave one door fully open in the warmer temps.
