Default Our first coop build

My 16 year old daughter and I built this coop from pictures and YouTube videos. Neither of us had previous building experience. The coop is not perfect but it will not fall down. We still have to add sand to the run, but we moved the chicks in because they needed out of the brooder.

We currently have 9 Blue laced red Wyandotte and 3 Bielefelders. Not all will stay in this coop. A bigger one is under construction by my husband.
