Finally got the new coop up! it took a whole weekend and allot of bolting, screwing, lifting, carrying, chicken escape attempts and many bruised fingers but its so worth it! It was my Dads Dads chicken shed and he got it from a man who had had it for a while so its a good few years old but its still going strong! had to replace a few timbers here and there and I need to add a couple of ramps up to the perches inside (my poor buffs cant get up there) but essentially its all done! what you guys think?
view from the front of the garden! nice bit of sun
its got sliding glass panels with mesh on the inside so you can let air in during the summer months and the glass panels at the top flip down like windows :-)
Sliding door is really handy lets the air in and the light . . .Horace likes to patrol the door i'm not sure why :-? and i can open the front coop door to let chicken out with a metal wire pulley system so i don't even have to go in the coop i can open the door from the outside!
Loads of space so if its raining really hard i don'y have to let them out at all!
nest boxes are a bit high for my buffs :( but the rest are just fine with them lol . . . once again Horace is striking a pose lol
