    We finally finished our coop and currently working on the chicken yard.

    The door was at a surplus store, the tin was recycled from an old barn from a friend. The bottom was old pallets. We tried to use as much recycled products as possible.

    We really did not have any plans just built as we go. There is 3 windows. The back is all rusted tin.

    That is really really cute! I wonder, is it really hot in there from the tin, or does the tin reflect the heat?

    I think this is one of my favorite coops ever! Soooo rustic. It reminds me of a building you would see in an old west movie. I love it!
