Tall Coop with Metal Roof

Originally Uploaded by Urban Hennery

This is a great example of a "high rise" coop. I love the metal roof, which will work well in stormy weather and will also provide shade. It's great how the nesting box is raised, allowing for more room beneath. Also, the tall structure provides good human headroom and the solid wood frame around the bottom will act as a barrier to potential predators, who might otherwise be able to tunnel or rip the fencing out of the ground. Note the great egg-door on the side of the nesting box. Impressive design!
