THE chickens coop mansion on a budget
Im 14 so my budget for my chicken coop had to be the smallest possible. EVERYTHING in the end including the cost of food, chicks, coop, run ended up being around $300. And this thing is *QUITE* big.
We have an 18" gap between the coop and the ground and the chickens like it- its their "Cave".
The dimensions are 4x8' for the coop and the runs an odd shape because they'res a parallelogram in the middle. My mums need for the chicken coop because she wants as little of her garden gone as possible. I scrounged for as many matterials as possible... As you can see the shingles are all mismashed from the different projects that other people sold to me for $0.20 a piece. I got as much free as I could
I used 1/2 inch welded wire because I found a great deal on craigslist for a 100' role
I was so pressed for money that I took a used car floor mat for grip on the ramp that I cut up
I used two windows one on each side for extra lighting. ( found them both for free.) and now we get a nice look into the coop form the house
It looks strong enough for a cat!! ;)
The nesting box
I put wire mesh on the bottom for ventilation because it gets windy here and we dont want drafts.
Comment if you want more!
