My coup 80% done

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Moved my 1 month old 9 chicks outside with a heat lamp. Even though I was keeping up with cleaning smell was noticeable with small rancher. But since PA is warming up. I'll let them into the run while I'm out side and it's above 70 went with wire lath for fencing since i have 5 bundles of it and it was free. Tinted corigate roofing. Think the ramp rods need more. Used 2x1s for them. Will fill in the gaps with more. Used the nesting boxes for the water and feeder until I pipe in the water and pvc feeder tube.

Just put a concrete block(16") under low end of roost.

Nice overhang on roof.

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."
