Hi, The Coop is 8Wx10Lx8H, The Avaiary is 16Wx20Lx9H, The rough cut wood ( Siding and Trim roof wood ) is from trees off of my Property

The Birds are all around 7 to 8 Months old.
1 IB Male split to White,
1 Black Shoulder Male Split to White
1 Silver Pied Male
1 Spalding Hen
1 Black Shoulder Split to Pied Hen,
I did build it to keep snow out ( If you see snow in the coop ), I had a Tarp over it the other day because I didn't have the wood on the roof yet, When I took the tarp off to put the wood down some snow fell inside. I am just waiting on the metal roof to come in so I can finish it.

I still have some landscaping I guess you would call it to do in the pen area and also need to finish the walk way to the coop, but the snow keeps getting in my way. I have Plexi glass cut out so I can close the windows up in the winter.

I just put the birds in there today, I just got the BS Female and the Silver Pied Male today. The other three birds I had sectioned off in one of my chicken coops. which you can see in the back ground in some of the shots.

I'm thinking you'll wish you had a lot more ventilation cut into that coop come summer time. Pretty construction but you can't have too many windows for coop structures, so you might consider cutting more openings for airflow.

I have a full size screen door, a Bird Door, and Three Windows, I do think I'll be ok, and the coop itself is under trees so it is shaded, If I run into problems I cut a new window in in 15 Min.
