    Finally the Guinea's are out of the brooder, I think there much happier in the fresh air. Hopefully in the next few weeks I can remove the run and allow them total free range.

    Very nice coop and fancy and the run looks very sturdy. What's the box on the roof for?

    The box is a new shape satellite dish [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Actually its an air vent, I wanted as much ventilation as possible as it's easier to block vents rather than make more, the roof cantilevers to allow more breathing room and the rear also has a mesh window that is covered at night making the tractor predator proof. The run is made from some old old chicken wire that I brought at a local auction and by my eye it looks some 3 times thicker than what is available in the hardware stores. I guess there are different grades of chicken wire?
    I'm glad this project is over as I need to finish the coop as it's been neglected for the past 2 months while I procrastinate about spending $100 on a new skill saw.
