    I was asked by many members to get cracking and set my BYC page up. So without further ado, here it is:

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=65588

    or just click on my BYC page link to the left. Thanks to all who helped us with our little project! It feels so good to have completed something with our own 2 hands. Who knew? LOL [​IMG]
     

  2. Lovely bit of work- you must be thrilled!

    I couldn't see if there is predator protection under the coop or the perimeter. The rest of the structure looks very safe!

    Great Coop! We would never know you were not pro's if you didn't tell us.

    They have hardware cloth under the whole thing.​

    Quote:Yes LynneP, thank you for asking....we chose to put hardware cloth under the complete structure (like the floor) instead of the apron. That's what the 3rd and 4th picture are showing. Although we didn't actually take a picture of it attached, lol. Silly us! [​IMG]

    Beautiful job!

    How do you clean sand in the run area? Spray it with a hose? Just bury it over?

    I really love your step perches, and the drop pan underneath.

    Very nice coop! You can get a few more chickens in there too! One thing...that galvanized waterer isnt suppose to be hung! I put ours on a concrete block to make it higher. Just FYI.
