My dad has built our coop for us, based on my suggestions (for the most part ) . He progressed quite quickly, I thought. This is a 4x8 coop roughly based on the Purina free plans. For ventilation, we've got a ~2-inch gap between the roof and the siding, which we plan to staple hardware cloth to, and there are three windows, which I wish were a tad bigger but oh well. The nest boxes are externally mounted, but I'm thinking they might not be deep enough. We are getting large chickens - Welsummers and Wyandottes. The run will be attached to the back of this, 10x10. Anyways, here it is: This end faces our yard and the entire side opens up and the biggest window is on this side. [/img] The inside...pardon all the junk. The roosts.
