Did you just happen to forget that beautiful little lady who probably knows the chickens are hers? Very
nice solid chicken coop and I am sure that you will have some tasty eggs for breakfast in the future. I notice
that you made the top removable to make it easy to clean the coop, as a person who has cleaned more
than one chicken coop, this is a very essential modification. Thank you for sharing.

My daughter claimed one of the chickens right away, and named both of them. The top isn’t removable, but the one side drops down for easy cleaning. I found the plan on Purina Mills website via a link on www.backyardchickens.com. I had to downsize the plans to fit my space, but it is very solid (heavy), and the chickens really like it better than the cardboard box they lived in for three weeks.

Thanks for looking!
