    My coop last year just built Storm Sandy flattened it^^

    We ended up modifying it for the winter

    Made a temp coop INSIDE the run plus a separate area for new babies

    Wow, that is a chicken palace.

    How many chickens do you have, and what types?

    I see the old coop was barn red with white trim, and the new coop looks like a different shade of red with green trim. (The red may be affected by the light.) Did you decide you wanted a change, or was that the paint you had available?
