Coop - Exterior walls made of inexpensive cedar fence boards (flawed ones at a discount).  The interior will be lined with wood panels, so lots of insulation against cold/heat.

Coop - Girlies eating.  We use sand for the base.  They enjoy diging in it, and catching the bugs.  We sprinkle cracked corn and other treats all around so they have plenty to search for in addition to their mash.  The sand is easy clean-up - rakes right up.  Can also be shoveled into a "classifier" (sifter mesh) - but doesnt need cleaning often.

Coop - Ramp is 2x4s with wooden shims added with brads.  In between the shims we added some self-sticking non-skid black tape.  The girls have no trouble on the ramp and can stop on it without slipping.  There is another outside perch which you cant see.  The Girls leap from the ramp to the perch.  Again, the perch is 2x4 for warm feet in winter.
