post your chicken coop pictures here! - Page 1671

post #16701 of 16707
Here is my homemade coop. It's hard to get a good picture if the inside but there are three roosting bars for them and the four nesting boxes(a few if them go lay the eggs in my horse barn in the hay) the window can be closed to keep them in but we usually have it open all the time. They hop out the window and down the ramp and let themselves in at night. I love it! Even with all the mis matched metal on the sides lol

Teehee!  Forklift pallets covered with a tarp!  Your concept has come a long way since then!

I didn't happen to see this model on the website of sunnysidecoops.  Is it made of pressed OSB particle board inside?  I'm not a fan of particle board products because moisture tends to start disintegrating OSB sooner than solid wood.  Chickens poop a lot of wet "stuff" so particle interiors are not resilient to moisture.
