Fellow poultry enthusiasts,

Try this one, 'a new picture 'host''.
I have been trying to get large full page pictures of the 'Show coop'
to post, but all to no avail. And I get my shoulder operated on soon
so the breeder coops will be on hold till the hottest days of the summer.
Dern...

These pictures take forever to download but...
Once they have downloaded once, they zap right on the screen from then on.
The first picture of the 'Show Coop' is my favorite.

Please check out the new nest boxes a friend from 1962
{the 7th grade} made.
His wife 'Jill' even made him paint them!
Built, painted and delivered... free!

Thank you...
{and I deleted the bad pictures
having no idea why they didn't work, sorry}

I could only view the first photo. It looks like nice digs for your chickens. You must live in a warm weather area??? You'd better watch those chickens...it looked like they'd been drinking a Heineken.

If you'll resize your images to a smaller resolution they will download/load much faster.

P.S. I don't have a lot of patience.

Intheswamp,

Sorry, they take a long time to download here too.
But once downloaded they 'open right up' next time you look at them.
I live on disability and it has taken 3 years to build the 'Show Coop"
And it isn't finished yet. It needs nylon netting for the top,
and 10 spot welds {corner post bracing}

But 'she's a honey' of a poultry coop
and well worth the wait. Check her out.
I am building more for my Barnevelders, Exhibition Reds and Bantums.
But not as big as the 'Show Coop'.
22 new Rhode Island Reds are going to live in the 'Show Coop'.

{And I'm sorry I capitalize and put these
[''''} after 'Show Coop' every time}
{But it is ... after all... a real....
'Show Coop'♫ }


And I just never put 'sides' on the front and the right side.
the poulty like it that way and I have never lost one yet.


Thank you...

Nice coop! Love all the personal touches. I am paranoid about the cold just because it's so windy where I'm at. I know it's crazy, my cousin had her chicken roosting in the trees in the BlackHills of South Dakota....here I am in San Diego and I'm building an insulated air tight coop! LOL What part of the country are you at? Looks like you have a nice piece of property...flat (wouldn't that be a dream!) and big trees. I'm glad that you're getting to enjoy your coop...anything worthwhile is worth the wait

I like it! It's right up my ally with 3 sides. (Mine only has 1 side! lol)

Like everyone else said, the pic is big so I just did something else while they loaded. I used to have dial-up so I know how to pass time on downloads

Good morning Knife. Well, I went back and waited for the picture to download. Good looking run and two-sided coop. It would probably help folks who are comtemplating building something like this to know your rough location (south California, central Illinois, northern Quebec, etc.,). Nice setup where ever you are.

Best wishes,
