Chickens are allowed an addition. :-)

Thread Starter 

3 years ago I built a simple all in one (4x8), I love it, it worked well. For 2 years I have 4 hens, about 5 days a week I let the hens free range. So the coop worked well, and I felt good with the freedom they had. 

 

Well, late last fall I gave away my hens, loaded the coop into the back of my F150 ( alone, not recommended ) hauled it 300 miles across the state.

 

6 weeks ago we got 5 Rhodey chicks. They have been living nicely in a 3x5 foot box in the basement.

 

Saturday we started a slight remodel of the all in one. 

 

Took one end of the run off, stripped the roofing, then built on a 24x4 ft additional run space, giving them 32x4 of run including under the house. Roofed it all in the same roofing as we did on our home not 3 weeks ago. 

 

Moved the Hens in, got a little trim and finishes. 

 

But I think they will be happy.

Whooaaaa!!!!

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!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

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