Pinders Coop

We bought the plans and ordered some materials. We needed to get this built our baby chickens are quickly out growing the brooder and want to be outside.    We built the structure on deck blocks and each post had to be set at a different length to get it level. Both sides are sided and chicken door and windows cut out with a router. Roof trusses installed. Both ends are now sided and the nest box area cut out.

Chez Poullet

A couple of pics of my coop that I built using The Basic Coop design from  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
