    I recently constructed a couple of coops designed to keep two free range laying hens secure through the night. I used plywood and painted it withWhite Siliconized Elastomeric Roof Coating . Here is the result.

    Nice. [​IMG] It has a very mid-century modern feel to it. I thought about using the elastomeric coating too.

    Oh, I like that! Looks like a perfect coop situation for convalescing chickens, too. Keeps 'em safe but still allows "social contact."

    (I've got an injured hen alone in my bathroom and I feel so sad for her being away from her flock.)

    Looks good. [​IMG]

    No roosts?

    Do your chickens have egg laying spots free range they use, or do you search your whole yard for eggs?
