Built this coop and run with limited new materials, mostly wood that I had laying around. most new wood went into the coop structure itself. It is still in the process of being finished, but the chickens and ducks grew to quickly, and I only have 2 days off a week. There was no drawn up plan just an Idea in my head of what my wife wanted.we have no trees around so free ranging is not a good Idea. I wanted the run big enough for them to get some exercise, as well as some freedom to roam and explore. A duck pond was a given. Need happy Ducks.
I know its a little redneck looking
coop door opens and closes viva a cable from outside
the roof still needs shingles, but the tarp works for now till we free up more funds. Donations are always accepted. LOL
because of our lack of trees, it gets real windy here so the back wall is a wind block.
The duck house if I can ever get them to use it. it is made from a re-purposed dog house
And of course a duck pond made from the galvanized tub we used as the ducks brooder
the red rails on the bottom of the run are re-purposed deck railing flipped upside down. The whole run is encased in chicken wire, even the top. (we have hawks)
