Our First Coop

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

After reading this forum for months and months and scouring the interweb looking at thousands of pictures and designs I set out to build our first coop.  I took bits and pieces and rough measurements from several different designs I saw, did some quick chicken math, gathered up any available materials I had and or people would let me have and went to work.  

 

What came together was a true design build and right now we only have about $23.00 in the screws holding the whole thing together. I had my chief engineer helping and several Coop testers on hand to make sure the final product will be sturdy enough for our Flock.  

Still a work in progress but the bulk of the work was done this weekend over 2 days.  We plan to add Paint, trim, doors, and plenty of predator protection.  Once the girls get big enough we will be adding an enclosed run but thats a project for another day, we need to get them out of the brood pen on the back porch first.  

 

Any comments and or suggestions are appreciated!  Thanks for Looking!
