Actually those nest boxes might work better on the other side, then you don't have to worry about runoff its very similar to these amish coops http://www.horizonstructures.com/coop.asp
My Coop - still under construction (pic heavy) - Page 3
You might want to consider some form of rain diverter ie gutter for the roof over the top of the nest boxes it could get kind of wet collecting eggs in the rain. Nice job so far
It's funny you should mention that - I picked up a 10' section today and hope to have it installed by the weekend! The nesting box stays dry because it is tucked far enough under but the egg collector would get all the run off from the roof! Thanks for the suggestion.
With the sun finally out today, I was able to get a little more work done on the coop. The back door is in, needs some trim to finish it off. The chicken door set up in the front is done and the first coat of white paint went on a few items. Take a looksie!
Back door and rear vent (rear vent, get it )
This pic includes my chicken door set up. The rope will be outside for anybody to raise or lower the chicken door without entering the run. Needs a 2nd coat of white on the trim but certainly getting there!
More updates to come.... Any suggestions?
I kind of just figured it out as I went but I would be more than happy to put together some measurements and such.
this design seems to be my favorite of all .. i like the play area under the coop, more dirt for the chics .. the roof, i just love the hard angle, must be for rain run off? rear vents, thats just good stuff - we all need that .. i just wish the chickens could tell me - hey lady i want a flat screen and i want my own bathroom, i guess you just build it and make changes as needed .. your coop definitely wins with me, it will be perfect for your chickens .. thanks for posting pics and sharing you knowledge!
