Here are some details on our location and Coop Constructions.
We live in San Diego, California so for most of the year the weather is really good. This is the empty space we had available for the coop.
We removed the split peas to make space for coop.
We cleared the area, the dimensions are 4f wide, 8.10f long and 3.8 high. At the far side you're looking at the frame of the coop.
This is the inside of the coop
Initially we planned on building a larger nesting area but due to the tree (picture on the right) in the middle of the coop we made one "large" one.
On the picture below you see the string that is attached to the entrance for the chickens.
This is the their caged run (measurements almost 6f long/ 4 deep and 3.8 high. Our space is limited due to predators and vegetable garden right next to them.
Here is the our finished Chicken Coop. What do you think?
