    I get nervous seeing so much vegetation and forested area around easy-to-dig-under pen wire. Make me feel better and put boulders, paver stones, or cinder-blocks around the perimeter of the fence. You've got a couple of places for the chickens to dive under from aerial predators but it's those day-browsing critters like foxes, raccoons, coyotes, oppossums, stray dogs, bobcats, weasels, etc that will figure a way to get inside that fencing and will easily dig under it in a flash. Those vegetable patches will entice raccoons for certain.

    I'm in NW La and it rained so much yesterday that I put a tarp on my little 4' x 6' dog kennel with cloth top and chicken wire over it. The tarp sagged and it looked like a kiddie pool. I'll have to do like the bigger coop and use tin from now on. Funny. [​IMG]

    This is the one that I REALLY want. The one we have now, (with 10 chickens), is just a extra large AKC Kennel.

    Not sure who you were asking, but since mine is the coop directly above your post, I will answer :) The entire structure is 4' width x 8' length x 6' height. The coop part itself is 4' width x 3' length x 4' height.
