    hey all,

    have a look at my BYC page to see the new coop. i used a lot of suggestions from folks here on the forum, both direct advice and things i gleaned from reading hundreds of posts. thanks a lot to everybody for helping me with this.

    i still have to finish the HW cloth and 12" buried apron along the sides of the enclosure. i am also going to put grass seed, cover that with straw, and lay down loosely some chicken wire so the birds don't ruin the new grass when they are roaming.

    i also have ome tweaks to the enclosure gate, just minor stuff.

    and at some point i am going to take the automatic-door timer outside for easier re-programming for daylight changes.

    Very nice coop. You can tell that you put a lot of thought into it.
