Apple Orchard Cabin Coop

This hen house features a 9W X 12L X 9H ft. coop with an attached 6W X 35L X 7H ft. covered run. The structure was designed to comfortably accommodate 20 chickens although there are only 12 current residents .      The nesting boxes are on the exterior of one wall and allow for easy access from the outside of the building. The high ceiling and venting allow for good air flow. The run is sheet metal covered for hawk protection and shade, made of hardware cloth to discourage predators, and tall enough to walk inside for clean up and maintenance. The hardware cloth is... read more

Chez Poullet

A couple of pics of my coop that I built using The Basic Coop design from http://www.thegardencoop.com/.  I've never really done anything like this before - first time using a circular saw even.   I modified the design slightly by elongating the legs so I could build a run that encompassed underneath the coop for 9 extra square feet of room.  Moved my two girls out to their roomy new quarters and so far, they seem to love it!   read more

Lay Inn Country Club Cottage

The Lay Inn Country Club Cottage   Ladies don't be jealous (LOL). For our anniversary my hubby built me a coop. The crown jewel is a automatic dusk to dawn door, love it!   The coop inside is 4'X8' the covered run is 10'X10'. The six nest are located on the outside and have sliders that allow for cleaning them.   The roost has a poop board below that collects most of the poop. I will keep it coated with horse stall freshener. It drops down on one side to assist with the cleaning. The clean out door located on the back of the coop is three feet from the compost... read more
