    I have long played with the idea of making coops out of a truck cap. It was only recently that I have had a chance to do this. I have one for my ducks, but I would like to see pictures plans and descriptions of other ones, or ideas. Please post!

    I have seen a couple... Um er by truck cap you mean Camper shell right? They just build a base to lift it up high enough to get inside and clean Kind of like a fence with supports to anchor the shell. Then the perches were up inside the shell making it nice and cozy for night time sleeping. Water proof too. Hmmm..... I dont have camper shells but I do have the need to make something equivalent. Trying to solve my roof dilemma on my own coop.
