  1. Ahh to be spoiled.....
    I wanted to make them something to keep the west wind and snow off them when It gets bad. This is what I ended up with. The 'chicken solarium' [​IMG] Clear polycarbonate roof to let in sunshine. They love it. ( and I have a place to sit with them outside when it's really nasty too!)

    I'm planning on building my girls a 'sunroom' add-on to their coop next year, too. Thanks for the ideas! :D

    Looks like you already had snow. Don't be surprised if you crawl in there on a cold, sunny day.

    'Bird is in the first picture. he loves rooting around in the straw acting like he is something special to the girls.
