We have never had chickens and are excited about this new adventure. Attached are photos of the coop (nearly complete).
The basics of our design came from combing the forums here: 2 laying boxes, 6 inch clearance for a litter tray on one side, 4' x 4' footprint within the shed, etc.
We would love to see your ideas for keeping the chicken door securely closed at night, hear any comments on ventilation, and a permanent and mobile run.
So far we've kept the cost under $200 and can't wait to pick up our chicks.
Thanks in advance and for all of the advice you've given in last posts!
