    This is my coop and run, it is working out wonderfully. I also posted this pics under the thread metal sheds, hopes this isn't considered double posting.

    Very nice indeed.

    My only concern would be how hot an all metal coop may get in mid summer. But, as long as you monitor that they don't get overheated, you should be fine.

    That being said, it looks great. Especially the artwork on the door. A very nice touch!

    The coop is actually in the shade almost all day long. The trees don't show up in the pic. I keep a close eye on the temperature in there in the summer and winter. I have a fan I could plug in if need be. The girls are hardly ever in there though, they go out in the run at sun-up and don't go back in except to lay until sun down.

    The artwork on the door is a result of me being bored one day. [​IMG][​IMG]

    I'd add some more ventilation, but other than that I think it looks wonderful. Great work [​IMG]

    I guess I didn't show the doors, they are the sliding kind. But we made a screen door that slips in the opening so there is a lot of ventilation.

    Do you think the screen doors are enough?
