    I made this coop last year after loosly using directions I found online. The first few pictures are from the weekend the coop was completed last May.

    Very nice design and decor, certainly a "pick-me-up" when you look at it

    Very nice! Any pics of the inside? Did you insulate it for your winters or leave it as is? What are the dimensions of the coop and run? I might have to build one of those myself for my silkies!

    Quote:I didn't insulate it over the winter and all my chicks survived the freezing Maine winter. I don't have a picture of the inside, I'll try to take one this afternoon.

    The over all lenght is 10 feet by 6 ft.

    I still have the coop designs if you want me to send them to you.

    I have a tractor that was built from very similar plans, but a bit modified. Love the paint job!

    Did you have any issues with snow? Did it ever get too deep in the run for the chickens?
