    Looks nice so far. Are you putting something on the bottom so predators can't dig in?

    Thanks guys.

    And for the predators thing, the coop is solid all around, and will be using a Auto Coop door as well. For the run, I will have 12" of wire on bottom to prevent diggers.

    Curious how you received your chicks today...our post offices were closed today...I received shipping notification on Sunday from them but figured it was just auto generated...Now I'm really worried....Congrats on the coop...

    Our business is right across the street from the post office, so they called me in the morning to see if I could come get them. We do lots of biz with them, so they know us personally. :)

    Cool coop! Your mystery chick looks like it could be a white crested black polish. I also ordered mine from mcmurray. I hiope I have as good of a turn out with them as you do!

    Everything's looking great! I too think the mystery chick is a White Polish Crested. They just make me [​IMG]! I think every hen house should have one just for a good LOL! Not that any chicken in a full run doesn't make you LOL!
