    Hello all, Awesome forum!!!
    This is our coop. I designed it as I built it, not recommended. So there are a few things I would change if I were to build another but the chicks seem to like it. The run is an old awning from a business which determined most of the design. Coop is 3x5, Run is 5x8, 4 chicks are living here.

    I just LOVE it!!! I know all about designing as you go!! I am going to be quite out of my mind by the time I am finished building my little coop. The problem I am having is using "scrounged" materials. It will make for an "interesting" coop when I am done!! I am counting on molding and paint to cover a multitude of sawing errors!!

    You did a great job!! I love the sign!!

    How old is your polish and what makes you think it is a boy?

    Just wondering cause ours looked a lot like that when they were younger... Mine are now 13 weeks and no one has crowed yet! *crosses fingers*
