    Lol no I am a retired police Lt. No building experience. But I love to watch and learn. So over the years I have learned what I could. Love to build though it was a blast.

    I don't get on nearly enough to let y'all know, but I really appreciate your pics! I like all of your coops, and those picture-directions, that's just the bees-knees! Thank You! :)

    This is a copy of our coop and run. The coop is 8 x 10 and the run is 12 x 12. The entire run is enclosed with 1/2" hardware cloth and buried 18" deep.

    I hope the girls and Bob will be happy. We have 10 girls and 1 Bob.
     
  5. These coops are incredible. I can't believe how different they all are yet they all serve the same purpose. Great ideas and input form everyone on BYC.[​IMG]

    You did a bang-up job for SURE! So happy to hear you went with 1/2" hardware cloth all around...the only way to go. I don't know where you hail from but being backed up to a forested area you're bound to have some predators...glad you built it like Ft. Knox!! [​IMG]

    That is so cool!! The only way it would be cooler would be if you could get some vines to grow on the outside of it.

    ozys5000 - what is the thought/theory behind the height? It seems so awfully tall...reminds me of the cages that oriental long-tailed fowl are kept in to keep their long tails looking spiffy. Very pretty!

    So here we are finally trimmed out and painted. I still need to install perches, door handles, and do a little landscaping. We went with the purple gold because my daughters school is the 'flyers' , purple and gold!! Our sign was made out of left over plywood and some wood carving.
