    Please visit the coops section above for ideas - many types, sizes and uses for them. Some even have step by step photos of the build and explain why they did certain things.
    You could also check out the predator threads for ideas on preventing attacks. Otherwise the Learning Center above is a fountain of knowledge, great for newbies or as a refresher course.
