New coop

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi all, I'm looking to build a new coop I've looked at many different designs. After doing some research I came across this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmQlGF6wipg I liked the overall design and layout and I'm contemplating building it. I was just wondering is it the right route to go down. 

Any advice appreciated.

I like it. Seems like he had put a lot of thought into the design. Very well done.

You win some and lose some. When at first you don't succeed: try... try... try... try and try again.

Inadequate coop ventilation...chicken wire window not secure......despite hot wire.

Main door and pop door latches not coon proof.

Counter weighted nest cover is cool....no security latch tho.

Watering system is cool....if it never freezes where he lives.

Feed indicator is nifty, but tray is wasteful and open to weather and wild birds. 

 

Looks like it would fit 8-10 birds....looked like he had more than that.

 

That's what I saw.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
