This could be my yard it looks do similar. Lol. Anyway, nice coop. I've seen these on line. You'll have to keep us informed as to your satisfaction with it. I notice you don't have netting overhead. So you have no concerns about hawks, or your chickens flying over the fence you do have. It's a good start. Not sure about your weather concerns. Might want to anticipate worse case scenario and what you would do.

Hi there I live in the uk so we don't get many hawks and they cant fly over it because they have all had there wings clipped! I don't know what your on about with the wether? It has insolation inside the coop? Worst case scenario the coop gets blown away down the field and I would go chasing it hahah :) thanks

i live in the uk and there is a sparrow hawk who sits on the chimney eyeing up my chickens, he hasnt bothered them yet though.
and weather conditions here are never as hot, cold or wet as the u.s. so as long as the chickens are secure we are ok.

I lived in Cambridge for about 4 months during a student exchange program. It was during the late 70's. I remember days when it was very cold, wet and windy. I took a bike to school and my ears and cheeks were Red when I got there. I also hitched up to Scotland during a break and I remember getting rained on there too. But I don't recall heat in the 90's. Nor do I remember much snow. I was there from August to the end of December. I have wonderful memories of being there. The food, the people, the places were all kind of magical when I was 21. I still miss Fish and chips wrapped in newsprint. I miss the apothecary shops. I miss the cheese rolls.

I celebrated my 21st birthday in Wales. Was in an old 16th century farm house with the school group. Gorgeous country. I'll never forget the rolling patchwork of hills. Wales is a very beautiful place. I would love to go back some time.
