Serama Coop (pics)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Here is our Serama coop. We actually built it at the end of the summer, but I never got to posting any pics! I am thinking about making a coop page for it. All we gotta add still is a name and a sign smile
All together is 4x8. The house itself is 2x4. We can move it around easily with two people. We are adding wheels soon just to make it even more easy. There is a string that I can pull from the outside that lifts the ramp and another that I can pull from the outside to close the pop door.

I am hoping to possibly build another house for some future additions and we are going to be building a run that we can attach to this one.

Enjoy!

Yep took just a couple days to make and it was around 50 or so dollars to build. All I had on hand was the shingles and the latches.
Thank you!That would be Skipper the Serama smile

What a great little coop/run.  This would be perfect for my tiny Pyncheons, as well.
Great job and very cute birds. smile
