    I am fortunate to be able to have this.[​IMG]The Lord has been good to me.I do have some money in my set up,but I have saved and scrounged 90% or better of the material.It is an on-going project and 1day I hope to get it done.I have fencing all around it with exception of where I wall into the coops[​IMG].Theses are ideas that I have picked up on BYC,or have seen needed as I went along working on it .I am always open to suggestions and if anyone sees something they like to use I am happy .My neighbor says when he passes on and if he is reincarnated he wants to be one of my chickens[​IMG]

    My Coop
    Very nice! I agree, you have some lucky chickens! I'm starting to think that a chicken coop is never quite "done"! I keep thinking I'm done and then I think of something else that will improve it. My coop is at http://www.littlewolf.org/preserve/the-scoop-on-building-a-coop/ in the interest of sharing. I also free range, (no run, no fence at all) so I don't have that to build. However, I recently had to dig a few drainage ditches to divert water during 5 year type flooding rains away from the coop. Then, I decided I could stand to have an awning over the coop door and I have some old roofing I can repurpose for that. It's fun, like you are doing, to reuse materials you have, not to mention so much cheaper. Always something new to do!

    Looking good, you have much to be proud of!
    Guppy
