    well no new pictures from today. this coop has been done on the cheap cheap (no pun intended lol). I have less than $250 in materials in it. the majority of material came from job sites I have been working on so today was alot of nail pulling and disassembling. I did how ever get the two back walls that are out of view from the house and in the predators path boarded for the run. 3 feet tall with wood from skids (spruce and pine) and the upper 4 feet being 1" chicken wire. I figure 7 feet with perches at around 4 feet will be good for our two seabrights who already love to fly.
