Thanks. The coop plans are being rendered in SketchUp by my husband. It is a 4' x 4' coop with 2 nest boxes stacked on the inside. We got a dual paned window from a friend and will have some hardware cloth covered vents.

Terrific coop! Well thought out. I'll show my hubby for inspiration. I sometimes wonder if we will end up doing something completely different than the 4 x 4... we have mild winters and can probably do something more open and airy... we'll see...

I love your names - especially Linea. I wish you all of the best with your little chickies. It's amazing how fast they grow. I have eight bantam Barred Rocks that hatched the end of May. Their mom is an excellent broody, and I love to watch her tend them. Here are a couple of my little ones:

Sweet bantams! I think more feathers have come in just today. The Buff Orpington seems to be growing the fastest.
