Granja De Pollo

Welcome to my Granja de Pollos...aka Chicken Farm!   Ok, so it's not really a farm... But I do have chickens!!  This page is to display my newest coop design.  It is constructed out of Cull wood bought from Lowes Home Improvement.  You can get good wood for almost half the price!  Anyways, here is the coop.  It stands 6' 6" tall at the peak from outside.  8 feet long and 6 feet wide.  I built the frame with 4x4 corner posts and 2x4 wall studs.   The floor is raised off the ground about 8 inches in the front and 12 in the rear. (unlevel ground...)  This also gives the... read more

The Portable Chicken Coop

The Portable Coop!   I wanted to make a portable Coop that we could move around the property so that the chickens would have fresh ground to live on every few days. I started construction in our small one stall garage out in the shop. We only plan for it to house a maximum of 5-6 standard chickens. It is approximately 5x3.     With 100+ temps during the day, I worked on the coop mostly at night or early morning. Most of the structure was made with newly treated 2x2x42" which were only $1.09 each from Lowes/Home Depot, I used about $25 dollars worth... read more

Our Coop

My husband and son built this coop entirely from recycled wood and recycled "stuff". They bought one concrete block (they already had the others needed to support the floor) and the screws and nails. The roof was leftover from our house shingles...when we had our roof replaced from Hurricane Ivan.(I do not have any plans since it was made without a plan in sight and was designed as it was built.) This is the left side run that runs behind our workshop: This is the left side run showing the entrance into the main coop (this is all protected):Here is the area to the... read more

Signature Silkie Coop

Old Building:  This was a child's playhouse, with a swing-set on the left and a sandbox on the right of the building. We removed the swings and fenced in the area under the swing set.  At the base of the fence we put chicken wire on the ground and secured it with some large logs to keep predators out.The sandbox on the right side of the building is about 10 foot square. The upstairs room was full of bee nests.... even the peacocks didn't like going up there.Signature Silkie Coop The building is behind my house, I can see it from the kitchen and my bedroom.  It is a... read more

Thats A Coop

 I knew I was going to need something to house the chickens in. My first thought was an old shed that was sitting and litteraly waisting away. It was stuffed the celing with scap wood, tarps, my husbands big idea "lets get a mini bike", tires, deer stand, and alot of who know what that was. It sat on a wet area and flooded everytime it rained, the building had sunk underground by about 4 inches on one corner. Pieces of the floor had to be replaced because of rotting wood. and the south west wall had to be replaced also because it was cedar board and the whole upper... read more

The Coop

The Richter Coop  Our basic premise for this coop was to recycle as much scrap lumber/materials as we could. We did this because 1) we believe in reuse of materials, 2) it's cheaper, and 3) we had the materials handy.  The coop was built from an abandoned tree-house or deer blind (never quite figured out which it was). Took some time to tear that tree-house down out of the tree. All of the timber was reused in this coop, as well as part of the roof. The old ladder leading up to the tree-house was used for the indoor roosts.  Three of the exterior walls as... read more
