    Ok This is the first thing I've built so I'm sort of excited .....I'm getting close to being done with my coop. I've been lurking here for a few weeks and thought I would share my work so far.... I do have a question- ow big should the door be for silkies?
    Hope I posted the pictures correctly....
    Thanks
    Beth

    What are the dimensions? How many silkies do you plan on having? Do you plan to let them out to free range any? I ask because I need something for some I'm hopefully going to have soon [​IMG].

    Great job!! My hubby isn't too thrilled with all my chicken antics but he got out in the rain last night and helped me clean up a stinky bator [​IMG] and he makes sure all my bigger guys and gals are safe every night [​IMG].

    Thanks!
