This fall I have started my Silkie coop. I ran out of money so some of it has to wait until spring to finish and I have decided to do a little changing around. I just thought I would post what I have and the new ideas that I will be working on this summer. I purchased a 10x12 metal building from Lowes. I got it really cheap because the box was damaged but there was no damage or missing parts to building. I then added a 10x12 run to that. I plan to expand the run if chicken math takes over. I will post pics of what I have and would like some input or see something that might need to be changed. The future plans that I have for spring are to add 2 vents to the front and back of the building. I also plan to add clear plastic roofing to the run and finish the lattice and add some nice beds around for some predator proofing like cactus and roses maybe. The screened door I built for the front will be changed to 2 doors with screen and plastic roofing sheets(for winter)and placed on the slides that the metal doors are on now. So tell me what you think. :> This the pic of the run so far. This is pic of the screened door.
