I also planted a wisteria to cover the south & east pens. http://www.rarefeathersfarm.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=121818765 121818765 Coop in early winter of 2010 http://www.rarefeathersfarm.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=121817489 121817489 Pop Door Covers I made these out of canvas tarp which I cut into squares and then into strips. I used nails to secure them to the coop. These still allow air flow and the chickens to come and go but they also block a lot of the cold wind we get. These are only on in the winter and are removed in the summer months. http://www.rarefeathersfarm.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=121817724 121817724 Eastern two runs http://www.rarefeathersfarm.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=121821117 121821117 Northern two runs http://www.rarefeathersfarm.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=121821118 121821118 Western bantam run http://www.rarefeathersfarm.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=121822391 121822391 There are three runs on the Northern side The last one is the NW run http://www.rarefeathersfarm.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=121822393 121822393 Ramps I bought some boot-scraping door mats and cut them into squares. I then screwed them into the ramps the chickens use to go into their coops. This helps wipe their feet off before they enter and cuts down on the mud they track in and the shavings they track out. http://www.rarefeathersfarm.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=121822394 121822394 Inside, looking east http://www.rarefeathersfarm.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=121822396 121822396 Eastern pens http://www.rarefeathersfarm.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=121823734 121823734 Painting one of the Northern pens http://www.rarefeathersfarm.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=121823735 121823735 A nesting box http://www.rarefeathersfarm.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=121823736 121823736 Eastern pen http://www.rarefeathersfarm.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=121823737 121823737 A different view of my coops Photo by Leeshy Lou Photography http://www.rarefeathersfarm.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=183620283 183620283 Coops 2012 http://www.rarefeathersfarm.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=188140726 188140726
