    Looks great! I see 2 problems with it though. First one is, it would probably be best to get it up off the ground. Secondly, I would put a run of some kind, to protect from predators. Here's a couple of pics of my coops to give you an idea.[​IMG][​IMG]

    I know exactly where that is. I used to live in Navasota, years ago!! I build coops and runs as a side business/hobby. More of a hobby, doesn't pay well:). If you need some pointers or help with anything, just let me know.
