    My neighbors and my family have been building a coop that sits in between our yards.

    We finished the coop yesterday and today we brought home our first four girls.

    The roof will have a living roof with vines growing from sold on top and flowing down.

    I will be back here for questions and getting to know everyone. If you have any suggestions or comments let me have them!

    Nice coop! What are the bricks going to be used for on top of the roof?

    very nice =]. I like the idea of allowing vines to grow through. I was thinking of putting grape vines grow on our fencing, but I don't want to compromise the strength. Beautiful coop, and the girls look happy. =] Like the feeder btw. I should construct something like that....

    We plan to chicken wire them down in the roof and then put a light mix of soil and grow vines to create an organic roof.

    I saw two coyotes this morning, hanging around.
