    Welcome to BYC!! I love your coop. I have a dog house that I am considering doing the same thing to. The shingles are coming off anyway, So I think I will ask my kids to help me to hinge the roof like that for our momma and 4 babies until they are ready for the big coop. Thanks for the photos!!

    hello. yea the roof took some thought and time but it seems to work great .it has two purposes a way to get the eggs and it makes a good lookout spot for the chicks it seems they like to be up high and roost
