    Nice coop NicJovi. Love the Carolina blue :)
    Also depending on the case, DH could stand for "D head", just saying. Not everyone's husband is all that "dear". :)

    It is beautiful! Ours isn't quite finished yet. Did you put an apron on the pen to predator proof it? We are unsure what to do. The ground is too rocky to bury hardware cloth, So "DH" is planning an apron, but we haven't decided what to cover it with. Great job. I love it.

    Well, it depends on the colors mixed in the camo. I've seen some fairly pastel beige and tan camos that didn't stand out that much - I think Desert Storm invented the sandy-colored camo's.

    Gray is a neutral color also but not as well-blended in a yard as the woodsy tones.

    Getting quite decorator savvy, aren't we [​IMG]

    If you have rocky ground you might use pavers...they're heavy and should help to keep the apron down...just thinkin' ....

    We have rocky ground too. We plan on using the big rocks around the pen to hold down the apron and deter predators.

    How do you retrieve a curious bird that goes behind it?
