    Like to thank everyone that i asked questions too. Also I copied alot of other ideas.

    Also. Do not frame on a flat and level drive way and then move it to a unlevel back yard and expect everything to not shift and be level.

    thanks.

    come winter i am thinking i am going to need to enclose the bottom. planning on an angled floor so i can hose the droppings out and they will come out easily. But not sure

    very nice! where is the feeder in the lay out? I am asking because I have made similar ones, but now that it is raining the feed is getting wet. Just wondering what your solution might be.

    If you look at pic 4. the left 2x4 under coop.

    was dry but pain to fill so I removed it.

    I am using a hanging feeder with trash can lid. That is mounted under the ladder.

    havent had any water probems with eithr placement
