    Very nice. It doesnt have a door to close them in safely at night. How do you plan to protect them from dogs, cats and worse at night?

    I think you should just add a door across the front with a latch.

    Nice coop but id still be worried about the preditors, possums/racoons are city dwellors. I'd hate to see you go through loosing them but good luck, I like it.
     
  6. Even cities have raccoons and possums. It's a nice coop, but without a door it looks like a predator snack shack. Sorry, hope i'm wrong.

    yea I can see the concern and it is true but there are no predators like that here and they have been like that for 2 years. They are my babies and I wouldnt put them in harm buy making it that way if I knew they could be harmed.

    Your seramas are awesome, awesomely tiny. How old are they? or I should ask, how old are they in the pictures? I thought my seramas were A's or B's, but am wondering now, lol.
