Our Chicken Coop

(Yes it is a little big for 2 Chickens.  But we love our girls)

 

Here are the girls:

Here is the Coop.

We wanted to be able to visit with them during the cold winter months in Wisconsin.

The finished Coop

About 1/3 of the material I received from family and friends.  The door and windows I purchased from a Habitat for Humanity Restore for really cheap.  Great place to find quality windows and doors for cheap prices.  I think for the 4 windows and the door I spent about $80.  The siding is old barn wood that my father in law gave us.  We have 3 outlets to provide lights and heat.  We are using the Deep litter method but I still usually clean the coop about 2 twice a week.

I think this is really sweet and attractive.
Now you can get a couple more when they reach unproductive age and keep the cycle going :)
