    Absolutely love it..You are very talented! LOL..,,,had a man building me before he ...just got can't get around to it (been going to since 1st of Mar before I got chicks) now I'm having to finish it. My DGD will be here tomorrow evening.. she has chickens, etc and will help me a lot. Can't wait!! Got materials...just need some help..! Got roof on, got a window put in, got nest boxes done/egg door done. Got to finish wiring over the ventilation areas, put on a pop door, a people door and redo the run. Oh yea, because it is soooooooooooooooo well ventilated (boards are bowed and old) to wire the inside walls.....LOLOL Got some pullets waiting ...hope to get them in the coop before they begin laying.! Such an adventure!!

    Apart from the door looking a bit out of place, I would say your's is beautiful. Nice workmanship and attention to detail.

    The door isn't bad either, I just think it's a different style than the rest of your coop and run.

    I think it looks amazing
    I prefer a rustic look than a fancy look
    But your looks really functional too
    You should sell your design online as a

    Hi again -

    Because you haven't had anything get in yet doesn't mean you don't have strong critters out there. Just two ordinary dogs broke down our gate and attacked our 4x6 coop that only had 1 inch chicken poultry wire and they mangled it with their teeth and claws - would've lost the flock if not for a good neighbor who chased off the critters. Poultry wire will keep poultry inside but won't keep the critters outside.

    $$$ is why poultry is a hobby and not-for-profit. We figure our eggs from one hen who's been to the vet 4 times in one year is costing us almost $4 per egg just in vet bills alone LOL!
