Front is 8 feet and rear is 6 feet tall. design inspired from the following coops: Taj Mahal / Wichita Knockoff The Palace Bluegrass Coop   3D print... read more

I just wanted to add in some Coop photos.  Our Chicken house is close to being completed.  The actual chicken area is 10x16, it also has a feed room/egg access doors in a 4x10  area, and a 4x10 front porch.     We started building the coop in the shop.     Two coats of paint.  We used yellow because we had accidentally bought the wrong color last fall and didn't end up using it in the house. So it was just sitting around, The deck is flooring we had laying around. Lola approves of the deck.   This screen door we found at a garage sale.  We ended up... read more

Chicken run made from gala or party tent

How to make a chicken run without tools. You only need a pair of scissors or a knive to cut the rope. Last year I decided to make our old party tent of 3x3 meters into a extra run for my chickens. This is how I started: And this is the result: Because the chickens already have a small covered run, I only used the frame of the party tent. First I painted it dark grey. Then put mesch around it . The mesh is 15 x 15 mm , 1 meter high on three sides and 50 cm high on one side. We put strong netting above the mesh. The netting was ordered online in the right size for my... read more

Ben's Bit*hen chicken coop

I've wanted chickens since I was a baby but my mom didn't. Then my brother got some weird disease where he can't eat almost anything from the store so she let me buy chickens so he could have eggs that were free ranged, so I bought 15 originally all that they had left 10 barred rock and 5 black sex link. After awhile they started to out grow there brooder and I hadn't even started to build a coop. So I probably made some sort of record of fastest built coop.
