That is so pretty!I did an aviary more than a coop, but I hope you can get inspiration from the "furniture."

- Grasses are a big hit—they spend every night sleeping wing-to-wing beneath a trio of plants, first place they run at signs of danger (preempts flushing in all but one hen).
- Breaking up line of sight seems to be the key to reducing agitation and preventing fighting. The birds have pretty short attention spans, but that doesn't mean a bare cage is suitable.
- Dust baths are a health necessity. Garden dirt that hasn't been pooped on by birds outside the flock or treated with garden chemicals should be fine (I use the beautiful sandy stuff our resident gopher digs up ). I've heard washed play sand, peat moss, and commercial topsoil are also good.
The grasses are Muhly. They use the dried leaves to line their nests.

Little hides are a must if you want to find eggs in one place (this is under a wicker basket). Sure, some birds will lay wherever, but that appears to be abnormal behavior.
Hope your chicks grow up healthy!
