    This little coop blends in well in our backyard, and was mostly made from recycled wood and lattice. I will add it to a proper BYC page when I get time. Hopefully these pics work!

    Aniera checking out the new nest box. It was originally supposed to be their ramp downstairs, but it was "too scary", so I had to make a new one. So now this is a roost/nest box.

    The girls even have some chicken artwork inside their home.

    Food and water hang from the ceiling.
    I am trying sand inside instead of shavings and it seems to work fine, except Aniera's white feathers look a bit dingy from it.

    Where did you find those windows? I want something like that in my coop.

    Thanks!
    The "art" are $1.25 each tiles from the Dollar Store, and the windows were freebies from an old pop-up camper trailer. [​IMG]
