    I built this myself 4 years ago and somehow never got the information up on this site. So far the coop works great and the hens love it

    I installed a Pullet Shut solar powered door in the "people" door on the west side. It works great and the chickens have no problem going up the steps to get into the house.

    Door to run. I put a chicken door in the "people" door to the run and will open this during the day so they can free range.
