    Now all we have to do is get it around to the back when some of the snow melts.

    What a great looking coop. I've been trying to come up with a design to house my 5 or 6 bantams and yours more than ticks all the boxes! Can I ask what the approximate dimensions are and how far the coop is off the ground? Will the pop door close or is it just an opening?

    looks great--- a couple of questions---I'm just learning, so please be patient with me!

    do you put a water and food supply just in the coop, or also another set in the run area?
    also, I don't see nesting boxes accessible from the outside---how will you handle the egg collection?

    I won't put food or water in the coop part, they just sleep in there and do crossword puzzles. If you click on the middle picture, you can see the nest access. This coop is an adjunct to our main monstrosity which is semi underwater right now.
