It looks really good.
the title is a bit confusing - are you now trying to get rid of it, or inviting chickens to come and stay?

In order to avoid confusion for all concerned, giving and taking should not take place in the Before and After forum -- it should be restricted to the "Coop" ad you have in the Givers' "Garden" forum.

Thanks for using JumbleTown.

Did you mean you got chicken wire in the shop? Interested, how big was it? BTW, great job!! Self sufficiency is the way to go. At least you'll have food if the government decides to reduce our incomes any more! (Tis why I got a tunnel too!)

great job, just two things (as an experienced hen keeper) - the felt on the roof may become a haven for RED MITE - just something to watch for. And how many hens to you plan to keep - the space is very small if they are not allowed out to free range - would recommend that you move the structure on a regular basis if possible - to keep them on a bit of grass as opposed to bare earth. Good luck!
