    just thought I would share some photos of the new mobile coop and run I have been working on.. The oegb moved in tonight. I think there going to like it. They have been cage birds there whole life they seam to like the extra room and being able to spread there wings.

    I still have some things to do to it. tin on the roof and trimming it out plus a small door on the front so there water and feed can be put in the run not the coop. I just couldn't wait to let them move in.

    YAY!

    You may want to add a few limbs or sticks as little steps going up the ramp. The kids are gonna have such a good time and learn so much.[​IMG]

    There is a longer ramp in there with small trim boards running across it for footing. that board was never meant to be in there.

    Nice job! I see you have helpers as well! May I suggest that you either replace or add hardware cloth to the run for predator protection. Chicken wire is nice for chickens but dogs and wild predators will go right through it to get to your chickens. It is worth the expense to prevent the heartbreak of seeing them killed. JMO. Again, nice job!
