Simple & Versatile

Nothing fancy.....Started off as a dry wall table (3 x 8) when Hubby was remodeling our house & never left.  Several years ago I got involved raising hatches until 8wks old for a breeder.  Started them off in a large plastic bin with light in the house, had Hubby enclose the bottom of the table.  Worked great.  He then built a corner table (2 x 8) for my gardening which we enclosed too.


No longer doing that, now have 2 RIR & 2 EE (bought as Ameraucana) that are "pets with benefits".  They're 8wks, Hubby installed a removable perch going the width, they didn't like it & chose to sleep in the pan with shavings.  So then had Hubby do the "T" facing the window....They LOVE IT!   They all sleep there now.


The run is 5 x 8 for chicks to get sunshine, got bird wire over the top.  It's light enough that I can move it around the yard as they wore down the grass.  Next project is a bigger run for the 4 pullets I have now, probably a 8 x 10 x 6 the dog house will be raised off the ground and perches added.  


The chickens spend the night in the 'coop' & walk out to the run for the mornings, in the afternoons they have run of the yard & go into their coop when it starts to get dark.  Nothing fancy, simple & versatile....Works for me.

Very nice! Everyone on BYC would like to come visit you and see your coop, especially once the snow start flying!
