The General Tso's Chick-INN

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Finished the coop this week and thought I would post a few pictures of The General Tso's Chick-INN. It's modeled after a Wichita Cabin Coop. The girl's are very happy and loving there new digs.

Wow! Very nice. I like your PVC feeder and all the hardware cloth. 

 

One suggestion, if you have raccoons they are very smart/crafty. I'd put additional/better locks on all openings, or maybe a padlock. 

 

Spoiled chickens you have there!

What a lovely coop!  And it looks like it's VERY secure too.  Easy access to the inside - lots of features that will make management very easy - great job!  :celebrate

Caretaker of a lovely mixed flock including: australorp, plymouth rocks, wyandotte, d'uccles, silkies, EEs, andalusian, and a few seramas, plus a golden retriever, great dane, and three cats.  I always swore that I wouldn't succumb to chicken math.  I lied.

Nice, Very Nice!

 

But please, change out those auto latching door latches ......and add a screen door extension spring for auto-closing.....

.......when that string breaks while you're inside, you're screwed.

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!!!

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

We realized that early on and there is a pull on the inside of the pen that unlatches the lock.

The string attached to latch that goes thru the door....or something else?

Would love to see it.
