    Its been up for six weeks or so, but I wanted to show off my husbands handy work. Made of reclaimed redwood from someone's old deck. Designed it ourselves with lots of great ideas from this site. Its a 4x4 coop with an L shaped run about 40 sq ft. It looks so pretty in our yard and the girls seem pretty happy with it!

    That looks awesome. The ramp looks steep. Your Pullets have no problem getting up it?
