    Merry Christmas everyone! I'm building my first coop and don't want to find out the hard way my latches are insufficient. I especially want to know if anyone uses rabbit latches and have they had any trouble. I was going to use them on a wire pop door from the run to the ~orchard. I have pictures of the latches I've installed and the rabbit latch on my web page. (I couldn't figure out how to add them here). I would love to see unusual or homemade latches.

    Great question. I am building my coop now and look forward to seeing pictures as well.

    Cheers!
