    The new coop is here it got here at 7am and I moved all the hens in they are out in the old PVC run all accept one of them [​IMG] the brave crazy little ameraucana and now as I am watching they are all kinda looking in the pop door at her [​IMG] I am going to take pictures and up load them now it is really cool and nice and the nests and vents are great I love it !!! You know your crazy when after carrying 11 crazy hens to there new house that you bought with your last cent for them and you see blood on your hens you flip and go check them all over and then when you realize you have a giant bleeding gash on your arm and you have know idea why you fell a sense of relief [​IMG] I am going to post pictures thank for you support.

    I really like the new coop and I could not have built anything any more secure. I am sure the hens will find another place to roost instead of that wire platform though [​IMG]

    Thanks for looking,
    Henry

    I love it, Henry!!! Wow, it's beautiful! Congratulations, buddy. Hey, something I noticed. Do the windows have regular screens? If so, you may need to put hardware cloth over the top and remove the screens. A raccoon could stand on the nestbox and push through if the window was open. Wouldn't want you to lose any of your beautiful girls.

    That is a really nice coop! Did you build that yourself or was it something you bought?
