Finally got to work more on the coop although it was partially in the persistent rain.
Boxed in the North Side and added wire mesh at the top for light and ventilation
Boxed in the South Side. That same wire mesh at the top 12" for light and ventilation.
Took off the West side old plywood to add a poop board slot and a another 12"x54" ventilation/light/window at the top. Poop board will be accessible through the siding for easy cleanout. (hinged hatch door not open)
LAST FEW PICTURES (before painting)
West side finished with all vents/wire mesh installed
Inside North Side - Laying boxes (tools are not good egg layers)
Inside South side - blue door is the hatch door to a non-existent run. (next project)
First few minutes in the new digs. They stuck together for about 2 minutes before they started running around. They seem to like the MUCH bigger space from the brooding cage. Pecking order posturing began almost immediately after this picture.
