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

What should I do with that old trampoline?

This one is easy!  We had an old trampoline frame in the back yard.  We just reconfigured the pieces into the frame and added a few cheap items to make the coolest chicken coop ever.  Our 10 chickens and 13 ducks have lots of room, especially with the attached chicken yard.   Before: (ok this was the new trampoline :-) )         After:  (what we did with the old one) Ultimately you are just using two halves of the circle (that used to stretch the trampoline) as parallel arches, and  connecting them with horizontal supports that used to be the safety-net poles.... read more

Hildy's Chicken Deluxe

It all started with these two ladies.... Dumb-dumb the Polish and Hershey the Sizzle. They were rescued but needed a better home than what they came with.    They ended up with this little number and the ability to free range. We wanted something that was functional and good looking. Our property is fenced but there is no privacy.  We did not want any complaints from the neighbors.     This is was the start of a lot of hard work. We choose the Wichita Cabin design. The run is 10 ft x 5 ft and the coop is 4ft x 5 ft.  Basic framing. Starting to put in the... read more
