    Well we made the improvements that were suggested what do you think, Im very proud of it, I purposely not showing outside cause it need paint. LOL[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] The chicken really seem to enjoy there new found freedom the last picture is my son that did the majority of the work. Hope you like it. Sandy
    we built the nest boxes in off the wall, and did the roost bars the same. the roost are about 4 ft. tall and the nest boxes about 2 and a half feet up off the ground hope I got those right. Any suggestion for improvement? All the windows and vents at the top are covered in hardware cloth, and we have the pophole covered so they will stay in there a week or so to get use to there new home, but they spent last night out there for the first time and the boys went out and checked on them thru the windows and everybody was on the roost just sleeping away, So I quess there happy little chickies! Sandy Oops just noticed I put two pictures of my son on here sorry! LOL
