This is a really beautiful coop, Staci!
Tell me, is under the left top eave, is that a small solar panel?
Having had my coop (we built from scratch, too) for 3 years now, I love the details you thought of to make this such a functional (and pretty) place for your birds.
How many chickens live in here?
(And do I spy a parakeet mirror w/bell hanging in the run? lol) :-)

Yes, that is in fact a small solar panel. My husband (the chickens think he's their farm hand!!) also ran electricity since we have a light, heated waterer and flat panel heaters for them. We were only going to have 12 chickens, however, we lost one, allowed Mama Claire to hatch 2, gave away the rooster and adopted 5 more (but lost one of those too). We are now at 16. They fit very comfortably in the indoor coop, it's the outdoor run that gets a little tight. And yes, you have busted me....I buy bird toys for the chickens and suet feeders for their greens. They love them!!

Finally, someone who has shared the inside of their coop! We're planning our coop now and it really helps to see a visual of the inner workings! Beautiful job!
